A Merrimack County grand jury has indicted a Concord man accused of aiding two teenagers in carrying out an armed robbery of the Shell gas station on Loudon Road in October.

Davein Jenkins, 45, is charged with hindering apprehension, accomplice to armed robbery and acts prohibited for dispensing the controlled drug Suboxone to one of the teens.

Prosecutors allege Jenkins provided the 16-year-old with a piece of a Suboxone strip “to calm him down” and a change of clothes so the teen wouldn’t be identified following an armed robbery of the gas station, according to a sworn affidavit prepared by Concord police Det. Wade Brown. Jenkins is also accused of cutting the orange tip off a black BB gun because the 16-year-old wanted it to look like a “real gun” and not a “fake gun,” the affidavit says.

The teen and a 15-year-old friend robbed the gas station at 24 Loudon Road near Everett Arena on Oct. 21 at 12:22 a.m., police said. A store clerk reported that two young men had entered the gas station wearing bandanas or shirts duct taped over part of their faces. One approached the register and pointed a handgun at the clerk, while the second stayed by the door as “an apparent lookout,” police said.

The clerk told police she handed over about 30 packs of Marlboro Red cigarettes and the register drawer, which contained about $50 to $70, the affidavit says.

Because the suspects are under 18, any criminal charges against them will proceed in the juvenile court where case records are sealed.

Jenkins is out of jail on bail conditions.
