NH police say 2 jewelry robberies linked to Mass.
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire state police investigator says two smash-and-grab burglaries at the same Portsmouth jewelry store appear to be linked to eight similar crimes in Massachusetts.
Lt. Mike Maloney says Chrisrial and Co. Fine Jewelry was burglarized twice this month, most recently Feb. 22. In both cases a glass door and window were smashed.
He says similar burglaries have been reported in the Massachusetts communities of Peabody, Andover and Swampscott.
The Portsmouth Herald (http://bit.ly/Y25Exh ) reports the suspect in the burglaries in that community is described as a man of medium height and medium to heavy build. He was wearing jeans, a dark belt, black boots, a black jacket or sweatshirt with a hood, canvas gloves, and possibly a dark mask over his face.
