DOVER, New Hampshire — A man was arrested after allegedly robbing the CVS Pharmacy on Central Ave. in Dover twice.
The Dover Police Department arrested Robert J. Belair, 35, of Berwick and charged him with two counts of robbery.
Police say the first robbery happened around 8:15 p.m. Oct. 22, when a lone male produced a note to the pharmacist demanding prescription pain medication. Once in possession of the medication, the suspect fled the business.
Then around 7:40 p.m. Friday, Dover police officers responded to the same CVS Pharmacy for a second robbery. Police say once again, the lone male suspect produced a note demanding prescription pain medication and fled the scene once he had the medication.
Police say witnesses provided a license plate number of the vehicle the suspect was seen driving. Shortly thereafter, a New Hampshire State Police trooper stopped the vehicle on Old Dover Road in Rochester.
Dover police responded to the traffic stop and arrested the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, Belair, and charged him with the Friday robbery. After further investigation, police were also able to link Belair with the Oct. 22 robbery.
Belair is being held at the Strafford County House of Correction.
No injuries were reported as a result of either robbery.
