Police ask public to help find robber


MEXICO — Police are looking for anyone who may have seen a man walking in the vicinity of the Mexico One Stop early Sunday morning.

Mexico police Sgt. Roy Hodsdon said the department has a video of the suspected thief who held up the convenience store using a pistol. The man made off with $254 in cash.

“Someone in a vehicle going by must have seen him. Even if they don’t think what they saw was important, call the police department to speak with me or Chief Theriault,” Hodsdon said.

The Oxford County Sheriff’s Office may also be contacted.

Someone may having been coming home or going to work between 5:45 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., Hodsdon said.

Anyone driving along Main Street, Roxbury Road, Harlow Hill Road or Gleason Street in Mexico or by Hosmer Field in Rumford during that time may have seen a man dressed in a dark blue hoodie sweatshirt and gray sweatpants walking, Hodsdon said.


The department is following up on people suggested by area law enforcement agencies, as well.

“We’re asking the public to help,” he said.

The robbery occurred at 6:20 a.m., Sunday. The robber used what is believed to be a 9mm gun when he demanded that the clerk give him the money in the cash drawer.

Although a surveillance camera caught the man on film, most of his face was covered by a scarf.

Those with any information, should call the Mexico Polce Department at 364-5686, or the sheriff’s office at 1-800-733-1421.
