Man On Bail Arrested After Robbery And Police Chase
On February 4, 2023, at approximately 5 am, Manchester Police responded to Speedway at 311 Queen City Ave for a reported robbery.
The clerk told police that a man walked into the store and told her he had a gun, handed her a bag, and demanded cash. Once he got the money, he walked out of the store, got into a white sedan, and drove away.
About 6:25 am, Manchester officers spotted the vehicle traveling in the area of Union and Somerville Streets. Police attempted to pull the car over, activating their lights and siren, but the driver accelerated. The car ultimately crashed at the intersection of Cilley and Mammoth roads, where there was a brief foot pursuit. The suspect was then taken into custody and identified as 51-year-old Luis Concepcion. Through the course of the investigation, police learned that the car Concepcion was driving had been reported stolen.
Concepcion had just been arrested last week after failing to show to court on multiple charges from 2022. Those charges included Robbery, Burglary, Armed Robbery, Theft of an MV, Felony Theft by Deception, Felony Receiving Stolen Property, Falsifying Physical Evidence, and Credit Card Fraud, all of which he was out on bail for.
Concepcion had a bail hearing on February 1, 2023 in Hillsborough Superior Court-North and was again released on PR bail.
For Saturday’s incident, Conception now faces charges of Robbery, Reckless Conduct, Falsifying Evidence, Receiving Stolen Property, Resisting Arrest, and Disobeying a Police Officer. He will be arraigned today in Hillsborough Superior Court-North.
