MANCHESTER — A Nashua woman was in court Friday to answer to three felony forgery counts and one felony count of theft by deception.
Abigail Capon, 45, of 26 Scripture St., is accused of forging three checks made out to herself on another person’s Citizens Bank account in December 2013 and cashing them at the 875 Elm St. bank branch. There were two $500 checks and one $300 check.
Bail was set at $3,000 cash/surety in Manchester District Court, with conditions barring contact with the bank account owner and barring Capon from Citizens Bank. A probable cause hearing was set for March 31.
Stay away from Dunkin’ Donuts
David Paul Curtis, 63, who lists the homeless shelter as his address, pleaded innocent Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to charges of disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.
Curtis, who was trespassed from the Dunkin’ Donuts at 1022 S. Willow St. last May 23, is accused of going to the store early Friday and being disorderly and yelling profanities.
Curtis said he would plead guilty, until a police prosecutor said a nine-month jail sentence would be the recommendation. He then decided to plead innocent, telling Judge William Lyons: “This is all brand new to me.”
The police prosecutor said Curtis’ criminal record dates back to the 1970s and he was convicted of criminal trespass last year in April, July and December.
Bail was set at $2,000 cash/surety, with conditions that include not returning to the Dunkin’ Donuts, and trial was set for April 24.
Conduct after an accident
Bail was set at $1,000 cash/surety Friday in Manchester District Court for a Chichester man charged with conduct after an accident.
Brandon Mancini, 23, of 70 Harvest Road, is accused of hitting a parked vehicle at 577 Pine St. Feb. 22, causing property damage, and not stopping to provide required information.
Bail conditions for Mancini include having no contact with the owner of the vehicle that was damaged. Trial was set for April 23.
Had prescription bottles
Michael Wing, 52, who is homeless, pleaded innocent Friday in Manchester District Court to a misdemeanor charge of receiving stolen property.
Wing is accused of having in his possession Thursday at 23 Elm St., four prescription bottles that were removed from a woman’s car.
Bail was set at $1,000 cash/surety, with conditions that include having no contact with the woman from whose car the bottles were taken. The bail will not be effective unless a 72-hour probation/parole hold is lifted on a conviction for fraudulent use of a credit card.
Trial was set for April 22.
She can’t go home
Nicole Cepeda Perez, 37, of 213 Bell St., pleaded innocent Friday in Manchester District Court to a simple assault charge that alleges she hit her husband Thursday.
Conditions of her $1,000 personal recognizance bail bar contact and bar her from the Bell Street address, but Cepeda Perez told Lyons that the alleged victim had left and taken all his property with him, even some that wasn’t his. She said she needed to return to the apartment because she has three children who live there. She said he is not the father of the children.
But efforts to reach the alleged victim by phone were unsuccessful and Cepeda Perez was told she cannot return to the Bell Street residence until a judge changes bail conditions as the result of new information.
Trial was set for April 22.
