A Dover Police officer happened to be in the store, reviewing surveillance video as part of an investigation into the robbery at the nearby Bank of NH branch, when he heard the commotion and learned that a man had partially fallen through the drop ceiling above the seafood and deli counter.

Police evacuated the store and the man again partially fell through another section of ceiling at the rear of the store.

Police were able to convince him to surrender, and Lombari was taken into custody.

He is charged with Criminal Trespass, Criminal Mischief and Resisting Arrest.

While they have determined there was no connection to the nearby bank robbery, they still have not figured out why Lombari was hiding in the ceiling area of the store.
