Drug arrest made after police search city man’s home
MANCHESTER — Police said that when they executed a search warrant at 49 Maple St. Tuesday night, they found scales and packaging material, $1,703 in cash and a bullet-resistant vest. The warrant was the result of information gathered by the Special Investigations Unit.
During the operation, they also arrested Tyrell Clagon, 21, who lives at the Maple Street address, on warrants for the sale of heroin.
Clagon is accused of selling heroin Sept. 18 at Maple Street and Oct. 17 at a Union Street location.
Clagon could enter no plea Wednesday to the felony charges in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division, so a probable cause hearing was set for Nov. 5. Bail was continued at $20,000 cash/surety.
Return home prompted arrest
Katherine Finnell, 54, was arraigned Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on a felony charge of theft by unauthorized taking and misdemeanor charges of stalking and criminal mischief.
Police prosecutors also filed a motion to revoke Finnell';s bail on the four misdemeanor charges on which she was arraigned Tuesday. Prosecuters are seeking to have Finnell held until her trial Dec. 16.
The new charges allege Finnell returned to her residence at 79 B St., despite bail conditions barring her from doing so because it is also the residence of her boyfriend, who she allegedly had assaulted and threatened.
At her arraignment Tuesday, Finnell had insisted her boyfriend had another residence, while she did not. She told the judge Tuesday: ';I need to go home.';
Police said the alleged victim was at work when Finnell returned to B Street, but the bail conditions barring her from the residence still applied. She';s also accused of taking the boyfriend';s $2,200 watch and causing damage.
A bail revocation hearing was set for Thursday.
Bail revocation motion filed
A city woman who was arraigned Oct. 15 in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on simple assault charges and Oct. 16 on a stalking charge was arraigned Wednesday on an unrelated theft charge.
Louise Mcilvar, 54, of 187 Central St., was arraigned on a charge of theft by unauthorized taking that alleges she took items valued at $83.12 from Walmart on Keller Street without paying for them.
Police prosecutors, who had opted for a contempt charge when she was arrested for stalking, Wednesday filed a motion to revoke Mcilvar';s bail and have her held until trial Dec. 4. The bail revocation hearing was set for Thursday morning.
Caught at the drive-up
Police said Chasrick Heredia, 19, of 109 Eastern Ave., was found in the drive-up lane at the McDonald';s on Hanover Street in a stolen Subaru Forester.
He was arraigned on a felony theft by unauthorized taking charge Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division, as well as on misdemeanors of fraudulent use of stolen debit card and receiving stolen property and on violations of minor in possession of alcohol and driving after suspension.
Although Heredia said he planned to represent himself in court, Judge William Lyons suggested he reconsider applying for a court-appointed lawyer since the prosecutor will be an attorney at the probable cause hearing on the felony charge Nov. 5 and at trial Nov. 21.
Bail was set at $5,000 cash/surety, with conditions that include no contact with the owners of the stolen vehicle and debit card.
Accused of attempted strangulation
Conditions of Thomas Coulombe';s $3,000 cash/surety bail bars contact with his girlfriend, bans him from his 405 Hevey St. address, and prohibits any use of alcohol.
Coulombe, 27, could enter no plea Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a felony second-degree assault charge that alleges he put his arm around his girlfriend';s neck, causing her to have difficulty breathing.
He pleaded innocent to three misdemeanors of simple assault, that allege he punched her in the stomach and pushed her, and a misdemeanor of obstructing the report of a crime, for allegedly taking her cell phone and throwing it across the room so she could not call police.
A probable cause hearing on the felony charge was set for Nov. 20 and trial on the misdemeanors was set for Dec. 16.
Eyeglasses were broken
Luis Soto, 45, of 117 Massabesic St., pleaded innocent Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to misdemeanor charges of simple assault and criminal mischief.
