KENSINGTON — Police have charged a pair in connection with burglaries in Kensington, and more charges are expected related to other break-ins in Exeter.
Terry M. Deschenes, 23, of Seabrook, will be arraigned this morning on three felony counts of conspiracy to commit burglary.
He was being held in Maine after his arrest on a probation violation following burglaries in Kennebunk, Maine, but was returned to New Hampshire to face charges stemming from three burglaries in Kensington last month.
Kensington police have also issued an arrest warrant for Shannon M. Reed, 24, of Portsmouth, on three felony burglary charges.
She was also arrested in Maine last week on charges related to the burglaries in Kennebunk, Maine, and remains held at the York County Jail.
Kensington police Sgt. Scott Sanders said Reed will face the Maine charges before she's brought back to New Hampshire.
"We don't know the timetable of when we will be able to take custody of her," Sanders said.
According to Kensington police, a residence was burglarized on Osgood Road on Nov. 22. The next day, burglaries were also reported at a home on Laurel Lane and another on Kady Lane.
Following the burglaries, Kensington police worked with detectives from the Exeter and Seabrook police departments to find some of the stolen items and develop suspects, police said.
Exeter police Capt. Stephan Poulin said his department also plans to issue warrants for their arrests. They are suspected in burglaries at two homes on Front Street on Nov. 20 and Nov. 22, Poulin said. Money and electronics were stolen from the residences, he said.
Deschenes and Reed were arrested in Biddeford, Maine, on Dec. 4 after Kennebunk police received intelligence information from Exeter police regarding the burglaries in Exeter and other neighboring towns.
According to Kennebunk police, information provided by Exeter matched information Kennebunk police had received. Police identified Deschenes and Reed as suspects and a possible vehicle.
After the information was shared with other York County law enforcement agencies, Biddeford, Maine, police found the two at the Biddeford Motel.
Deschenes was arrested on an active warrant for a probation violation in New Hampshire. Kennebunk police said he is expected to face criminal charges there.
He is being held without bail on the probation violation and $10,000 cash on Kensington's burglary charges at the Rockingham County jail.
