MERRIMACK — A 49-year-old local man was arrested by Merrimack police Thursday on a criminal threatening charge.

David Vachon, 26 Carter Road, turned himself in on a warrant that had been issued for him on the misdemeanor offense.

On July 12, 2018, Merrimack officers began investigating a report that Vachon had threatened harm if the victim had come onto Vachon’s property.

Officials said Vachon was released on personal recognizance bail and was scheduled to appear Thursday for arraignment in 9th Circuit Court Merrimack District Division.
