The Concord Police Department has arrested Zachary Snyder, 24 of Concord, in connection with an attempted robbery of the Dunkin Donuts at 101 Loudon Road that occurred on Dec. 6, 2014. He is accused of attempt to commit armed robbery (class A felony).

According to the department:

"On December 6, 2014, at approximately 12:07am, Concord Police Officers responded to the Dunkin Donuts at 101 Loudon Road for a report of an armed robbery. Two victims were identified, both of whom were store employees. They stated that an unknown male suspect entered the store wearing a mask over the top of his face. The victims stated that the man approached the counter and pointed a black-and-gray handgun at them, stating 'give me the money.' One of the victims stated that she refused, and the suspect made the same demand again. The victim stated that she again refused, and that the same exchange took place a third time. After telling him 'no' for the third time, the victims stated that the suspect fled the store. No injuries were reported and the suspect did not obtain any money. The victim later reported that she was not trying to be brave, but was in shock during the incident and was terrified to think about what could have happened.

"Surveillance images were soon obtained and released to the public.

"On January 7, 2015, at approximately 10:40pm, Concord Police Officers responded to an alarm at the CitySide Grille at 25 Manchester Street. Officers found signs that an unknown person had forced open a door to the restaurant. They soon encountered a man coming out of the restaurant carrying a pry bar and hammer. The man was arrested for Burglary and was identified as Zachary Snyder of Concord. Snyder was later held on cash bail at the Merrimack County House of Corrections, where he has remained ever since.

"During the arrest process, officers made several observations leading them to believe that Snyder was the suspect who attempted to rob the Dunkin Donuts. Among the observations, Snyder fit the physical description and was wearing a distinctive black knit cap with eyeholes cut in it, which when pulled down was consistent with the mask worn by the suspect in the attempted robbery. They further observed other articles of clothing consistent with the robbery suspect. Detectives followed-up on the investigation, executing multiple search warrants on Snyder’s vehicle and home. This led to the recovery of additional physical evidence implicating Snyder.  

"This incident was one of two armed robberies that occurred in Concord in December 2014. It should be noted that Snyder is not a suspect in the other robbery, which occurred at the Tedeschi Food Shop at 201 S. Main Street on December 16, 2014.

"Both investigations are ongoing and anyone with information about these crimes or suspects is asked to call the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100. All calls are strictly confidential with rewards of up to $1000.

"Snyder was arrested at the Merrimack County Jail & House of Corrections where he is currently being held. He refused bail and will be arraigned this morning, February 5th, 2015 at the 6th Circuit – District Division – Concord (Concord District Court)."
