HARTFORD - Two men were arrested early Tuesday morning in Cornish following a series of crimes that were committed overnight in White River Junction, Lebanon, Windsor and possibly other area towns.
Hartford Police Chief Philip Kasten announced Tuesday that a warrant is being sought by Vermont authorities for the extradition of Nickolas Kempton, 22, of Manchester, New Hampshire in an effort to charge him with larceny from a person.
Chief Kasten said that shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday morning Kempton entered the Station Market, which is also the Greyhound bus station located at 18 Sykes Mountain Avenue in White River Junction, and purchased a single cigar.
As the clerk opened the cash drawer to complete the transaction, Kempton allegedly lunged over the counter and forcibly grabbed money out of the register. Kempton then fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash and got into the passenger side of a waiting vehicle.
Police subsequently determined that the vehicle had been reported as stolen from Lebanon about an hour earlier.
