Norwich — Police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a man being sought as “a person of interest” in several recent retail store thefts in central and southeastern Connecticut, including a robbery at the Norwichtown Shell gas station and convenience store last weekend.

Police released two photos of the person, a Black man with a trimmed beard, and are asking anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact Norwich Detective Scott Meikle at (860) 886-5561, ext. 3156, or by email at, or by calling the department's anonymous tip line, (860) 886-5561, ext. 4.

Police said the Norwichtown Shell station at 168 W. Town St. was robbed by two men Friday night. The station clerk was locked in a bathroom, and the suspects allegedly filled trash bags with merchandise worth about $7,000.

Police are seeking two Black men who were both about 6 feet tall. Police said surveillance footage showed one man wearing a tan New York Giants hat, a short-sleeve shirt, a mask and blue gloves. The other man was wearing a blue long-sleeve shirt with a neutral-colored baseball hat.

The men were driving a gold Chrysler 300, police said.
