'Night crawler' burglars break into NH business through skylight

PELHAM, N.H. — While they might look the part, these aren't secret spies.

In a true comic book villain style, burglars in New Hampshire broke into a Pelham business through the roof and crawled around the store as they robbed it.

Early on Monday morning, at around 3 a.m., officers responded to an alarm call coming from BP South Gas Station on Bridge Street.

At the scene, officers found the burglars had gained access into the business by pushing the skylight in and dropping down from the roof.

Dracut Police assisted in searching and securing the perimeter. While no one was found, the owner arrived on scene and confirmed tobacco products had been stolen.

Video surveillance shows two men breaking in through the roof and crawling around the floor, similar to the burglars who broke into a Southborough business earlier this year.

One of the suspects is wearing an all-black outfit, while the other one is wearing a red shirt, black pants, gray hat and a navy blue mask. Both were wearing dark gloves.

No arrests have been made so far, but police believe this case is linked to a local crew committing commercial burglaries in and around Southern New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Detectives are actively investigating this incident. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Pelham Police Criminal Bureau at 603-635-2411.
