PELHAM, N.H. (WHDH) - Police in Pelham, New Hampshire are seeking the public’s help identifying a person who broke into and robbed a convenience store on Saturday.

Officers responding to a reported robbery at The Stateline Market on Bridge Street around 3:20 a.m. were shown surveillance footage of a person forcefully entering the store through the front door and stuffing objects into a duffel bag, according to a post on the department’s Twitter page.

“He knew what he was doing I don’t think this is the first time that he has broken into an establishment,” Pelham police Lt. Anne Perriello said.

The burglar can be seen grabbing cartons of Newport and Marlboro cigarettes and failing to get into the cash register.

“He was very specific with what he took, the Newports, they’re very easy to sell on the streets. They seem to be the drug dealers choice,” Perriello said. “Oftentimes you can end up getting drugs just for the cartons.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 603-645-2411.

“Now that things are transitioning back into the new normal we ask that everyone pay attention to what’s going on we don’t want anyone’s businesses being broken into these are hard times right now so anything any extra eyes can help us,” Perriello said.
