MANCHESTER — Police officers who arrested a man for non-payment of child support ended up charging him with drug possession.
Police had spotted Jesse Loring, 36, of 15 Brook St., getting into a vehicle on Pine Street, near High Street, and stopped the vehicle, making the arrest on the support warrant.
While Loring was in the transport vehicle, an officer noticed Loring had something in his mouth and was chewing on it. It turned out to be a baggie allegedly containing heroin. Officer Brian Riel recovered the baggy and Loring was charged with two new felonies, possession of a narcotic and falsifying phyical evidence.
Loring was arraigned Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division, where bail was set at $2,000 cash/surety and a probable cause hearing was set for May 5.
Woman accused of stabbing boyfriend
Trish Salem, 37, of 259 Chestnut St., could enter no plea Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a felony charge of second-degree assault that alleges she stabbed her boyfriend in the back with a knife.
Bail was set at $2,000 cash/surety, with conditions barring contact with the alleged victim and barring her from his residence. No plea can be entered to a felony in Circuit Court, so a probable cause hearing was set for May 5.
Says victim rings his doorbell
Liang Yan, 23, of 31 English Village Road, pleaded innocent Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to misdemeanor charges of simple assault (2) and false imprisonment.
Yan is accused of throwing a glass at his girlfriend that hit her on the left side of the head, shoving her in the chest and causing her to fall backward, and preventing her from leaving the apartment by refusing to give her the keys to her vehicle.
Conditions of his $1,000 personal recognizance bail bar him from contact and from going to a specific West Clarke Street address. Speaking through an interpreter, Yan said the woman calls him and hangs around his apartment, ringing the bell. He also said they have class together at a local university and he wanted bail conditions barring contact modified, but police prosecutor Sgt. Stephen Reardon said the alleged victim would have to be contacted before bail conditions could be changed. Trial was set for June 3.
Smashed phones lead to suspended sentences
Veronica Girard, 33, and Jason Mongeon, 37, both of 52 Dubuque St., got into an argument Sunday over a picture posted online.
When Mongeon went to take a shower, Girard smashed his cell phone. After his shower, Mongeon discovered what his girlfriend had done, so he grabbed her cell phone and smashed it on the floor.
Both Girard and Mongeon pleaded no contest Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to charges of criminal mischief.
They were given six-month jail sentences that were suspended for two years of good behavior, ordered to undergo domestic violence evaluations and follow up with any recommended treatment, and pay resistution through the probation department, which tacks on a 17 percent administration fee.
Sex offender charged with failing to register
Christopher Ramon, 45, of 405 Manchester St., could enter no plea Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a felony charge of failure to register.
A convicted sex offender, Ramon failed to register his online identifiers.
A police prosecutor sought $1,000 cash/surety bail, but Ramon asked Judge William Lyons for personal recognizance bail, saying: “I’ve never shirked my responsibility.”
Lyons wouldn’t set personal recognizance bail, but did cut the proposed cash/surety bail in half, setting it at $500. However, bail will not be effective until a 72-hour probation hold is lifted, Lyons reminded Ramon. A probable cause hearing was set for May 5.
Man accused of strangling girlfriend
A man accused of pushing his girlfriend, attempting to strangle her and threatening to kill her if she called the police, was arraigned Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division.
Arnold Wiswell, 46, of 11 Third St., could enter no plea to the second-degree assault charge that alleges he attempted to strangle his girlfriend, causing her to have difficulty breathing. He pleaded innocent to the simple assault and criminal threatening misdemeanors.
Bail was set at $3,000 cash/surety, with conditions that bar contact with the alleged victim and bar him from her residence. Wiswell said he can live with his boss in Nashua. A probable cause hearing on the felony was set for May 5 and trial was set for May 21.
Accused of assault on her boyfriend
Crystal Perks, 27, of 138 Pearl St., is barred from returning to the Pearl Street address by bail conditions on two charges of simple assault, one of criminal mischief and one of obstructing the report of a crime that she was arraigned on Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division.
Perks is accused of hitting her boyfriend on the back of the head. Bail was continued at $1,000 personal recognizance, with conditions that also bar her from contacting the alleged victim. Trial was set for June 3.
Bail hearing set for man charged with felonies
Jamey Ingerson, 38, whose address was listed as 53 Maple St., Littleton, on the court docket, but is listed on the official sexual offenders registry as living at 463 Beech St., was already scheduled for arraignment April 29 on two charges of sex offender duty to report when he was arrested on a theft charge.
Ingerson was arraigned Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on the duty to report felonies, along with a felony theft by unauthorized taking charge that alleges he took about $5 worth of merchandise from the Market Basket store on Elm Street. That charge is a felony because it is his third theft charge.
Because he allegedly committed a new crime — theft — while out on bail, police prosecutors filed a motion to revoke his bail and a hearing was set for Tuesday morning.
A probable cause hearing on the three felony charges was set for May 5. If his bail on the duty to report felonies is not revoked after Tuesday’s hearing, bail will be set on the new theft felony.
