MANCHESTER, NH – Police arrested a man Saturday morning at TN Gas, after a clerk used a silent alarm to summon them. The clerk told police he believed that the man who entered the store might be the suspect wanted for a Nov. 13 armed robbery at the conveniences store – and perhaps a string of other convenience unsolved store robberies.

At 3:40 a.m.on Dec. 20 Manchester Police arrested Antonio Grullon, 42, at the store, located at Bridge and Chestnut streets. Grullon is charged with possession of narcotics – allegedly for heroin and cocaine found on him by police.

Manchester Police Sgt. Chris Goodnow said detectives have not yet determined if Grullon is connected in any way to a series of unsolved convenience store robberies in November. However, police had linked at least four armed convenience store robberies to the same unknown suspect in early November.

On Nov. 13 at about 3:30 a.m. a clerk at TN Gas called police to report an armed robbery had just occurred in which a man came into the store demanding cash.  The suspect in that robbery also took the clerk’s smart phone. The robber was described as a light-skinned black male, about 6-foot-2 with a thin to average build, with a black semi-automatic handgun. The above photo was taken Nov. 13, 2014 by TN’s security system.

Goodnow said a booking photo of Grullon was not immediately available.
