Police: 17-Year-Old Robs New Hampshire Store at Gunpoint

Authorities say a teen held up a store at gunpoint in New Hampshire early Saturday before leading Vermont police on a high-speed chase.

New Hampshire State Police say the robbery took place shortly after midnight Saturday at a store at a rest stop off Interstate-93 in Hooksett and the suspect was identified as a missing 17-year-old from Bow, N.H.

Vermont State Police say they took the same teen into custody later Saturday following a chase that spanned about 30 miles on Interstate-91. Authorities say the teen was driving a Ryder rental van that was stolen earlier in the day in New Hampshire.

The teen hasn't been identified. He's facing charges in Vermont and has been turned over to New Hampshire State Police. It's not known if he has a lawyer.
