Concord Man Sentenced On Robbery And Gun Charges
CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Benjamin Hugron, 33, of Concord, was sentenced on Monday in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to 17 years in prison on robbery and firearms charges, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.
On August 8, 2013, Hugron walked into a Penacook, New Hampshire restaurant, pointed a firearm at the cashier, and demanded money, ultimately walking away with more than $300 in cash. One week later, on August 15, 2013, Hugron entered a Penacook, New Hampshire convenience store and again demanded money at gunpoint, making off with approximately $400 in cash and merchandise. At the time of the robberies, Hugron was on supervised release for a 2007 federal conviction, also for two robberies that he had committed in the New Hampshire area.
This prosecution arose from an investigation by the Concord, New Hampshire Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Nick Abramson and Seth Aframe.
