Police: Man threatened to kill dogs, burn down house

CANDIA - Candia police have charged a Raymond man with criminal threatening and vandalism after he allegedly threatened to kill a man's dogs and burn down his house, and subsequently destroyed his mailbox with a baseball bat.

Peter Longo, 26, of Raymond, is charged with Class B misdemeanor criminal mischief (vandalism) and Class A misdemeanor criminal threatening "with a purpose to terrorize."

According to the police affidavit, Longo and a homeowner on Depot Road in Candia got into a "shouting match" on March 16 at around 11:20 a.m. over Longo pulling his car over off to the side of the road near the man's home.

The argument escalated until Longo stepped outside of his Acura and told the homeowner: "I'm going to kill your two black dogs and burn your house down." He then, according to police, took a baseball bat from his car and smashed the homeowner's mailbox, breaking it off of its post and onto the ground.

The homeowner reported the incident to police. Raymond police found the vehicle and Longo, with the bat, about 10 minutes later on Lane Drive in Raymond.

According to the affidavit, Longo confessed at this time to smashing the mailbox during the argument, saying that "he knew he should not have done" it; he later wrote an apology letter.

Charges were filed against Longo on March 28. He will appear before the 10th Circuit District Division Court in Candia on April 17 at 8:15 a.m.
