Gilford man allows child’s removal after SWAT team’s arrival
GILFORD — A Belknap County SWAT team was called to a Mountain Drive home Friday morning as police tried to serve a court order to remove a child from a man’s custody, police said.
The man eventually surrendered the child without incident, police said.
Police arrived at the home of Edward F. Fallon, 51, at 164 Mountain Drive shortly after 11 a.m. Friday to remove a child, whose name and age were not made public, by order of a Massachusetts court.
The court order specified that the child was being returned to his mother, police said, though they did not specify the child’s relationship to Fallon.
When they arrived at the home, Fallon went inside and refused numerous police attempts to speak with him, according to Police Chief Kevin Keenan.
A SWAT team from Belknap County was called after about three hours of no contact with Fallon.
Keenan said Fallon and the child voluntarily left the home shortly after the SWAT team arrived.
Police said the court order involved the New Hampshire Division of Child, Youth and Family Services and a similar government agency in Massachusetts.
Fallon was charged with a misdemeanor count of obstructing government administration and a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.
He was released on personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the Laconia District Court on Aug. 16.
