Nashua man suspect in bank robbery

LONDONDERRY — Jason Enwright was loud, unruly and flashing large wads of cash in a restaurant less than an hour after a nearby bank was robbed.

Last week, the 38-year-old Nashua man was in court, answering to charges related to the holdup of Citizens Bank on Nashua Road.

Police said Enwright walked into the bank at 4:15 Dec. 4 and passed a teller a note, saying she wouldn’t get hurt if she gave him some money — with no dye packs.

The teller complied, handing him $1,428 and no dye pack.

Enwright took his note back, smiled and departed, saying, “Thank you, have a great day,” according to court documents.

Minutes later, state and local police swarmed 42 Nashua Road, filling the Londonderry Commons plaza with officers, a police K-9 and lots of flashing blue lights.

They were looking for the suspect, who one witness reported had jumped into a white sport utility vehicle with heavy front-end damage and no front license plate.

Enwright, meanwhile, apparently drove his Chevy Tahoe less than three-quarters of a mile to Cafe Teresa at 103 Nashua Road.

He soon attracted attention there.

A restaurant employee called police at 4:50 p.m., asking that an unruly customer be removed.

The caller said the man, who appeared to be drunk, said he had just struck a deer with his vehicle in Hudson and needed someone to give him a ride. He also flashed large amounts of money.

Two Hudson officers responded because Londonderry was busy with the bank robbery and an earlier three-car accident.

Officer Brian Morgan said Enwright appeared nervous and drunk, according to an affidavit. He noticed Enwright’s SUV, parked in the restaurant lot, matched the description of the getaway vehicle in the bank robbery.

A work coverall, identical to one the robber wore, was spotted inside the Tahoe, Londonderry police Lt. Kevin Cavallaro said.
