Frank Walton, 25, of Main Street in Raymond, John Ahern, 23, of Jacob Wells Road in Epping and Charley Ann Martin, 24, of Hummingbird Lane in Raymond were taken into custody on Friday on a variety of charges in connection with the robbery, according to police.
The trio remained held on cash bail at the Rockingham County jail in Brentwood. They are expected to be arraigned this week in 10th Circuit Court, Candia Division.
Police said Walton, Ahern and Martin solicited the contractor through Craigslist, asking him to complete an estimate on some work.
When the contractor arrived at the home on Wednesday, he was robbed at knifepoint, police said.
Police were called to an area of Route 27 and Hummingbird Lane on Wednesday at 11:10 a.m. for a report of an assault involving several people.
Sgt. David Spinney arrived on the scene first and was told that one of the suspects, armed with a knife, had fled the area.
Officers notified Raymond High School that a search for the suspects was happening nearby, so the school could be put "in a secure state," police said. Police searched an area behind Hummingbird Lane for roughly 40 minutes then notified the school to resume normal activities.
Police located the three suspects after an intense search of the home used in the robbery, and the area behind the house.
The victim sustained minor injuries.
Walton was charged with criminal restraint. Ahern was charged with robbery, criminal restraint, criminal threatening with a deadly weapon and possession of a controlled drug. Martin was charged with criminal restraint, attempt to commit robbery and hindering apprehension.
Police said they developed enough evidence on Friday to obtain arrest warrants.
