Pro-Gaming Senators’ statement on Joint House Committee Opposing SB 152
SB 152 now heads to full House for vote
CONCORD, NH — Senators Chuck Morse, R-Salem, Lou D’Allesandro, D-Manchester and Jim Rausch, R-Derry, issued the following statement today regarding the vote by the House Joint Committee of Finance and Ways & Means opposing SB 152:     
    “We are extremely disappointed the joint committee chose to oppose this bi-partisan bill that is so important to New Hampshire’s economic future.   The majority of our citizens and Gov.

Teens Robbed of I-pod/Cell Phone


MANCHESTER, NH- On Monday, February 11, 2013, at about 6:30 PM, Manchester Police responded to a Clay Street address for a report of a robbery.  On arrival, they met with two 16 year old Manchester teens who reported they had been the victims of a robbery a short time earlier on Somerville Street, near Belmont Street.


According to the boys, they were walking in the area when they were approached by two men, one of whom demanded their belongings, indicating his companion had a gun, although no gun was observed.


One of the boys surrendered his I-pod Nano and Galaxy S3 cell phone and the men left.  They were last seen leaving the area as passengers in an older, dark colored 4-door sedan operated by a third individual who was possibly wearing a red sweatshirt.


The first suspect was described as a white male in his forties, about 6’3” tall with a slender build and dark “stubble” on his face.  He was last seen wearing a dark colored vest and a green “beanie” style hat.  The second man, alleged to have possessed a gun, was described as a clean-shaven white male in his forties with an average height and build.  He was last seen wearing a camouflage shirt and khaki pants.


Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Manchester Police Department at 668-8711.  Anonymous tips for cash rewards can be made through Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040 or online at
