Farmington man indicted on robberies at two homes

May 23. 2012 10:26PM

DOVER - A Farmington man was indicted this month for robbing two homes, including the residence of the man who apprehended him in February.

Joseph Hebert, 28, of 70 Bunker St., was charged with two counts of burglary for allegedly entering and taking items from two homes along Ten Rod Road near the Rochester border Feb. 18.

After one of the alleged robberies, Herbert was apprehended by Dennis Fleming, 61, who spotted him walking down Ten Rod Road. Fleming allegedly found Herbert coming out of the window of another nearby home.

Fleming said he fired his .38-caliber handgun once into the ground and detained Hebert until police arrived and charged him with possession of Vicodin and two counts of burglary.

While police initially filed a felony charge against Fleming for discharging the handgun, they were dropped by the Strafford County Attorney's Office. Police returned Fleming's firearms, which were secured due to the felony charge, soon afterwards.

The grand jury handed up the indictments, which are not an indication of guilt, May 17 in Strafford County Superior Court.

Burglary is a class B Felony and each count could lead to 3 to 7 years in prison, if convicted.

Hebert is scheduled to appear for an arraignment July 1 at 9 a.m. in Superior Court.
