New Hampshire Man Charged for October Hit and Run at Gas Station

MANCHESTER, NH – Manchester Police have arrested 49 y/o Sean Watson in connection with a Hit and Run that happened several months ago. The accident happened on October 1, 2020 at the Lake Ave Food Mart located at 425 Lake Ave. At approximately 9:30 pm, someone backed into the victims’ vehicle while it was parked at the gas pumps and the owner was inside the store.
Surveillance video obtained during the investigation captured the suspect driver, now identified as Watson entering the store prior to the crash, as well as the crash occurring in the lot. Still images of the surveillance video were posted on MPD social media accounts and a media release was sent out earlier this month. Watson was quickly identified. We thank the public for their help. Watson turned himself in today (1/15/21) and was charged with Conduct After an Accident.
