CANDIA — Police arrested a Manchester man Thursday on a warrant for the felony charge of receiving stolen property stemming from a June incident.
Eric Brophy, 28, is being held on $25,000 cash bail following an arraignment in the Ninth Circuit Court in Nashua.
Around 3 p.m. on June 7, Raymond police issued an alert for a vehicle that was potentially involved in an attempted robbery there.
The car, a black Jeep Cherokee, was registered to a resident of 61 Crowley Road in Candia. Candia police found the car parked in the driveway at that address.
The Jeep, although registered to the Candia resident, was allegedly being driven by Brophy, police said.
Police found in the back of the car a backpack containing jewelry, cameras, a laptop computer and other items, which were all identified as the property of a Chester resident. The Chester resident had not known the items were missing, but reported a burglary to police in that town after being contacted by a Candia officer.
Brophy was arrested that day on a probation violation, according to the police department's activity log. His probable cause hearing is scheduled for July 18 in the Candia district of the 10th Circuit Court.
Officers from the Raymond and Chester police departments and the New Hampshire Department of Corrections worked on this case.
