Epping man confesses to robbing Market Basket, citing financial problems

On February 9, a man from Somersworth, New Hampshire, was arrested after he robbed a Market Basket in Epping and attempted to flee from the police.

According to The Union Leader, a regional news source, 32-year-old Eric Dubois - a father of three - confessed to the robbery charge, telling authorities that he has been having financial issues and made a poor decision.

The police affidavit reveals that Dubois arrived at the Brickyard Square shopping center carrying a note that read, "Stay calm. Give me all your money or I start hurting people starting with you. MAKE IT FAST." He handed it to the store clerk, who quickly gave Dubois $163 in cash.

A store manager chased the thief into the parking lot and was able to copy down his license plate number, which he gave to local authorities. Later that day, Barrington police officer Adam Winkler saw the vehicle on Route 125 and pursued Dubois, who evaded capture until ultimately crashing his car.

Police arrested Dubois on the scene and recovered $158 from the vehicle. Epping Police Officer Jonathan Swift interviewed the suspect, and that's when Dubois admitted to the crime.

According to the source, Dubois was held at the Strafford County jail on $10,000 cash bail or bond and arraigned on February 11. For charges related to the accident on Route 125, he faces reckless operation, reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer and driving after suspension and will return to court on February 27 for a probable cause hearing.

If you have been accused of a crime in the Granite State, you may want to consider consulting an experienced New Hampshire lawyer. These professionals can review your case and defend you in court, ensuring that you have a fair trial.
