Detainee collapses outside Manchester courtroom after arraignment
Vietze, who is accused of assaulting her husband, Michael, also sought personal recognizance bail, telling the judge: “I haven’t been in trouble in three years.”
A convicted felon who allegedly confronted his roommate with a handgun during an argument, and chambered a round, was arraigned Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division.
Albertson, whose address is listed simply as Hemlock Street, told Judge William Lyons he thought the bail was excessive, but Lyons said the repetitive drug-related behavior warrants a high bail, which includes conditions barring contact with the alleged victim.
Two charges in two weeks
Michael Russo hadn’t been arraigned yet on a May 2 misdemeanor theft by unauthorized taking charge when he allegedly committed an armed robbery May 16.
Police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier requested $7,500 cash/surety bail for Russo, saying he has no criminal record, but the rapidly escalating behavior is of concern.
Charged with assault
A Salem man, accused of throwing a lighter at his girlfriend’s back and grabbing her wrist, Monday told Circuit Court-Manchester District Division Judge William Lyons that the alleged victim doesn’t want to press charges.
Police said Joshua Robinson, 32, of 24 Malvern St., who was in an area where they were investigating a report of a dispute involving a gun, had a loaded handgun in his possession. Police also allege Robinson ran from officers who had told him to stop.
Francis McLaughlin, 21, who lists a homeless shelter as his address, was in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division Monday on two theft by unauthorized taking charges that allege he took items from Market Basket, 460 Elm St., without paying for them, on two separate occasions.
McLaughlin said that he’s homeless and his priority is meals and a place to stay. “Does that mean I’m out on (personal recognizance) today?” he asked Judge William Lyons. The answer was “no.” Lyons said: “You had that and you didn’t show up.” Bail now is $1,000 cash/surety, with another $1,000 owed for McLaughlin’s failure to appear when released on personal recognizance, which carries a promise to pay if the person fails to appear.Bail conditions bar McLaughlin from Market Basket. Trial was set for June 18.
Police said when a man was spotted riding a bicycle without lights down the middle of Beech Street at about 9:40 Sunday night, he was stopped and, based on further investigation, found in possession of a small amount of heroin.
Police said they were called to the parking lot of a Union Street laundromat at 8:20 Saturday morning to check the condition of a man slumped over the wheel of a parked vehicle.
Officers Neil Penttinen and Lou Krawczyk reported finding Michael Wright, 38, of 15 W. Broadway, Derry, slumped over the wheel of a Chevy Trailblazer. Penttinen also reported a needle and bottle cap containing a brownish liquid were in Wright’s lap. The man was awakened and the liquid identified as heroin.
A police prosecutor, noting Wright’s convictions for bail jumping and forgery, requested $5,000 cash/surety bail. Wright asked for personal recognizance, but Judge William Lyons said that since there is a 72-hour probation/parole hold on Wright, a drug charge was bound over to Hillsborough County Superior Court, and since Wright is out on bail from Superior Court, personal recognizance bail was not appropriate. A probable cause hearing was set for June 4.
