$500 reward offered in Penacook Pharmacy robbery

The Penacook Village Association is offering a reward of $500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the Penacook Pharmacy robber – and it’s hoping contributions will boost the reward higher.

“The Langlais family and the pharmacy they own have been a vital part of our community for over 50 years,” the association said in a statement announcing the reward. In addition to support for the family, the statement said, the reward is intended to demonstrate “that criminal activity will not be tolerated in Penacook.”

The pharmacy was robbed just before 5 p.m. Feb. 17 by a man in a black puffy coat and a mask. He displayed no weapon, but ordered one employee to the floor while demanding prescription drugs from another before running away down Washington Street.

The village association has established a $500 reward, and said additional donations for the fund could be sent to the Penacook Village Association, P.O. Box 6174, Penacook, 03303. Checks should be made payable to PVA, with “pharmacy reward” on the memo line. For more information about the reward, contact Bill Smith at 568-9404 or bill03303@comcast.net.

The Concord police said the robber was about 5-foot-8 and weighed about 160 pounds.

“We are still investigating it,” Lt. Timothy O’Malley said of the robbery, “and would certainly appreciate any help from the public.”

Callers with information about the robbery can call the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100. All tips remain anonymous.
