Ryan Cheney was already wanted before the robbery on unrelated arrest warrants

Police in Tilton, New Hampshire, are searching for an "armed and dangerous" gang member in connection with a robbery that occurred on Thursday night.

Tilton Police said they received a 911 call reporting an armed robbery at the Tilton Shop Express at 622 Laconia Rd., at 7:25 p.m. Thursday. A male suspect dressed in black, wearing a black ball cap, allegedly pointed a black handgun at the clerk and demanded all of the cash in the register.

When police arrived, the suspect was already gone, but they were able to determine his identity using store security cameras.
