Candia Woods employee arrested for attempting to rob his work
CANDIA - Candia Police arrested 22-year-old Brendan Keenan for attempted burglary of the Candia Woods Golf Course, where he was employed.
With the evidence pointing to an inside job, police investigated Keenan, closing the case with a confession, they reported.
Keenan, of Candia, turned himself in Nov. 15 after an arrest warrant was issued for him. Police say he confessed to the crime a week prior.
According to the Candia Police affidavit, Officer Jake Deignan responded to an alarm at the Candia Woods Golf Course Oct. 27 at 5:20 a.m. While on his way to the scene, Deignan was told that witnesses had observed a long-haired male running from the building after the alarm activated. Upon inspecting the clubhouse where the alarm originated, the liquor room door, which holds the business' alcohol but also a safe, was found to be left ajar.
Nothing was found to be missing from the room, and the safe remained closed. A Candia Woods employee said she locked the room the night prior. The keys to the room, which were kept "in a place where only employees could find them," were found to be missing.
Later in the day, while officers were still investigating the scene, Keenan showed up for his shift. Police recognized him as fitting the description of the man seen fleeing the building earlier that morning. As a result, Keenan became a person of interest.
Officer Kevin Cashman, who took the lead on the case, met with Keenan Nov. 9 at the Candia Police station. Keenan confessed to the burglary, submitting a written statement asserting that he had in fact been in the clubhouse at the time of the burglary after having previously stolen the liquor room keys. The keys were not recovered. Keenan told police he threw them in a brook near his home after fleeing the scene.
What Keenan intended to take is not clear, as it appears he did not anticipate the alarm and fled empty-handed. Candia Golf Links manager Ted Bishop told Candia Police that Keenan did not have access to the alarm codes, which is limited to select employees.
Keenan was released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail. He is scheduled to appear in 10th Circuit Court, Candia District Division, on Dec. 5.
