Peterborough: Two arrested in GFA robbery
Peterborough Police have arrested and charged two men in connection with the Nov. 18 robbery at the GFA Federal Credit Union in the Monadnock Community Plaza.
Two men were reported to have stolen more than $11,000 and fled the area in a car with Massachusetts license plates.
Evidence and eyewitness accounts from the scene helped police identify the first suspect as Christopher M. Clarke, 27, of Leominster, Mass. He was arrested by Peterborough and Leominster Police at his home on Nov. 23 on a Peterborough warrant for armed robbery. He is currently being held in Massachusetts and awaiting transfer to New Hampshire.
After the arrest, police were able to identify Michael M. Mack, 24, of Fitchburg as the second suspect. Mack had been wanted in connection with several armed robberies in the Worcester, Mass., and Fitchburg areas.
Massachusetts State Police arrested Mack in Leominster on Wednesday on warrants for the Massachusetts and Peterborough robberies. Mack is currently being held in Massachusetts.
Police also said in a press release issued Wednesday evening that some of the money taken during the Peterborough robbery had been recovered in a residence in Gardner, Mass.
