HOOKSETT, N.H. (AP) - Police in New Hampshire and Massachusetts are investigating a pair of gun store robberies this month that they believe might be related.

Police say two men stole weapons from Wicked Weaponry Firearms in Hooksett, New Hampshire on the morning of Feb. 3.

The suspects left with four firearms including handguns and semi-automatics worth more than $2,000.

Police say a break-in happened Monday morning at Hitman Firearms in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts, located about 34 miles south of Hooksett. Four handguns were stolen, including a 9 mm.

Tyngsborough Police Chief Richard Howe tells WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/1ooJeeN ) the robberies happened at the same time of night and that a similar amount and type of firearms were stolen.

Authorities are investigating.
