NASHUA, N.H. — A father and son have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a bingo game in Nashua, New Hampshire.

One of the bingo volunteers tells WBZ-TV he was counting money and getting payouts ready when the suspect came in to the bingo office.

The suspect, identified as 46-year-old Charles Preston, then allegedly flashed a gun and said ‘This ain’t a joke, put the (expletive) money in the bag.’” The volunteer says the church members were stunned.
