There have been no arrests associated with the March 21 burglary of downtown Peterborough’s Hobbs Jewelers, Police Chief Scott Guinard said Monday.

Guinard was able to confirm that a call that summoned officers across town right before the store’s alarm went off at 3:20 a.m. was connected to the burglary. Master Patrolman Christopher Martin was still working on the case and the department had no other details to announce yet, he said.

According to police records, officers were called out to Old Mountain Road at 3:27 a.m. on a report of a domestic dispute that was determined to have not taken place, right before a the store’s burglar alarm went off at 3:30 a.m. downtown. At the time of the incident, police said security footage showed two men dressed in black broke in and left quickly, taking a number of wristwatches with them. The front door was smashed as well as a glass case inside. It is the second time the store has been burglarized, Guinard said.
