BELMONT — After an 18-month investigation, police have charged a local man with armed robbery for holding-up the Rte. 3 Dunkin' Donuts store on October 21, 2013.
Travis W. Dickinson, 36, of Belmont was released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division on August 6, 2015.
Police said video surveillance shows Dickinson entered the store about 9:30 p.m. wearing a mask and gloves and brandishing a large knife. He allegedly ordered the two employees to give him money and he fled with about $630. No one was injured.
"It is also satisfying for law enforcement as a result of patient and methodical investigative processes to solve a crime of violence," said Lt. Richard Mann.
Mann went on to say that Belmont detectives engaged in a lengthy and time consuming investigation that involved interviews, warrants for cell phone activity, and interviewing witnesses that culminated in Dickinson's arrest.
According to Concord Police, Dickinson was charged with misdemeanor criminal liability for another for an offense committed Sept. 17, 2012. An on-duty lieutenant contacted yesterday by The Daily Sun did not know the outcome. He said the underlying charge was a theft that was committed by someone who was allegedly a passenger in his car.
