Manchester Crimewatch: Man's bomb threat/robbery plot didn't account for off-duty officer at the store
“I admit I did it,” said Blackey, who had put serious thought into his planning, but couldn’t have imagined that an off-duty police officer would be in the store he had targeted.
Brian Holmes, 33, of 198 Grove St., insisted Thursday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division that an ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend are targeting him. Holmes was arrested Wednesday night, in the area of Wilson and Silver streets, on warrants alleging felony stalking and felony violation of a domestic violence protective order and a misdemeanor of criminal mischief.
He was also arraigned on a felony charge of possession of a narcotic after approximately .55 grams of suspected heroin were located in a sock during the booking process.
A police prosecutor requested $5,000 cash/surety bail for Holmes, saying his criminal record includes willful concealment and two previous violations of protective orders. Lyons set bail at the requested amount, with conditions barring contact with the alleged victims and barring Holmes from their residences.
Drug house initiative
A New Boston man, arraigned Thursday in Circuit Court-Manchester District division on a felony charge of possession of a narcotic drug, asked Judge William Lyons for personal recognizance bail. “I’d like (personal recognizance) because I do have a job,” said Robert Ruggiero, 20, of 467 B Francestown Road.
Lyons reduced the bail to $1,000, but declined to set personal recognizance bail.
A probable cause hearing on the felony was set for May 29.
Charges at three stores
Jayda Rodriguez, 43, of 455 Pine St., pleaded innocent Thursday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to two charges of theft by unauthorized taking and one of willful concealment.
Theft charge is felony
Because he has two previous theft convictions, Theodore Macenas was charged with felony theft by unauthorized taking for removing $80 in merchandise from the Home Depot store, 129 March Ave., Wednesday.
Macenas asked for a break on bail, saying: “I have no money.” Judge William Lyons set bail at the amount requested by the prosecutor, with conditions that include not going to Home Depot. A probable cause hearing was set for May 29.
