DURHAM - Four men from Manchester and Salem have been charged in connection with the burglary of a University of New Hampshire students apartment in Durham.

About 9:20 p.m. Friday, Durham police were called to “The Cottages” at 71 Manor St. after three men walked through the unlocked front door of the apartment. The intruders fled when confronted by the student living there.

“There were two people in the apartment when these three men entered,” said Deputy Chief Rene Kelley. “One of the residents followed them and gave the description of their car to police.”

The men in a dark blue Chevrolet Impala were stopped by Lee and Durham police in Lee and arrested.

Taken into custody were Oumaru Kante, 21, of Manchester; Daquan Henclewood, 21, of Manchester; Sethe Shea, 20, of Manchester; and Devyn Alston, 21, of Salem. The men were arraigned on felony charges Tuesday at Strafford County House of Corrections in Dover.

Kante, who allegedly acted as a lookout, was charged with criminal liability for conduct of another. He is a fugitive from justice on an extraditable warrant out of the state of Alabama, according to a press release.

Kante is being held at the county jail in lieu of $5,000 cash or corporate surety bail.

Henclewood is charged with burglary and was released on $2,500 cash or corporate surety bail.

Shea is charged with burglary and criminal liability for conduct of another and was released on $2,500 cash or corporate surety bail.

Alston is charged with burglary and also was wanted as a fugitive from justice on a warrant out of Florida. He is being held at the county jail in lieu of $2,500 cash or corporate surety bail.

None of the men arrested were students at UNH.

It is unfortunate that this happened, Kelley said, but UNH are sometimes targeted by people with bad intentions. Students often leave their apartments without locking the doors or have large parties where they do not know everyone invited into their home, which makes it easy for criminals to come back and rip them off, he said.
