Police on lookout after robberies
Officers with the Nashua Police Department are investigating several reported robberies that have occurred in the past few days.
Police on Tuesday morning responded to the Dunkin Donuts located at 109 Daniel Webster Highway for the report of a robbery, learning the male subject entered the business and demanded cash from an employee.
The suspect, who was allegedly armed, fled with an undisclosed amount of cash in a light color sedan. Officers believe the same suspect entered the Speedway at 79 E. Hollis St. less than an hour earlier and demanded money, although no weapon was displayed.
Police describe the suspect as a white male, average height and build, who wore specific clothing in an attempt to conceal his identity.
Nashua officers are also investigating two similar robberies from Oct. 5 and 10 at separate Subway restaurants, both located on Daniel Webster Highway.

‘Shredding day’ this month
The success of last year’s combined “shred day,” food drive and Coffee With A Cop event has prompted organizers to host another one this month, then make it an annual event.
Co-hosted by Hollis police and the Hudson office of the regional document destruction service Shred-It, the event will run from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, in the police department parking lot at 9 Silver Lake Road.
A mobile shredding center will be on site ready to shred paperwork, documents and credit or debit cards, and it accepts paper clips and staples.
Items that cannot be accepted include CDs, DVDs, binders or other types of metal items.
In exchange for the free shredding service, organizers ask that visitors bring nonperishable food items that police will donate to local charities as the holiday season approaches.
They ask that the food items are boxed, canned or packaged; they cannot accept items in glass containers or that need refrigeration.
Visitors can stop and chat, and have a cup of coffee, with police officers during the event. The informal meet-and-greets and conversation are part of the department’s Coffee With A Cop program.
