Police say southern NH burglary ring busted
Two Manchester men arrested in Greenfield late Friday are suspected of committing dozens of burglaries throughout southern New Hampshire and stealing what police say could amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of items.
“This is a burglary ring that has worked this area for several months,” Police Chief Brian Giammarino said Saturday.
The two men stole “easily tens of thousands” of dollars of items, the chief said. “It might even be hundreds of thousands.”
Arrested were Scott P. Lefebvre, 47, of 20 Rosegate Farm Drive, and Thomas Bragdon, 55, of 429 Central St.
“They're career criminals,” Giammarino said. “This is what they do.”
The men were arrested Friday night allegedly attempting to commit a burglary at a residence on Francestown Road, the chief said.
Both are charged with one count of burglary, two counts of attempted burglary and one count of possession of burglary tools, the chief said. Lefebvre also has one count of criminal mischief.
He said they face additional burglary charges in other communities and are suspected of committing dozens of burglaries.
Both men were being held on $100,000 cash bail each at the Valley Street Jail and face arraignment Monday morning in Circuit Court, Jaffrey Division.
Police from Francestown, Lyndeborough, Hancock, Peterborough, Bennington and Antrim were involved in the investigation. Giammarino expects other police departments to call about burglaries in their communities to see if they are tied in with this suspected burglary ring.
Asked how widespread the burglaries were geographically, the chief said, “It goes out as far as Goffstown and Cheshire County. They have gone that far.”
