Stolen car, tools

Accused of stealing a car Tuesday from Catholic Medical Center, as well as tools from Home Depot are Steven Howard, left, and Kurt Maclean.

MANCHESTER -- Police arrested two men Tuesday afternoon outside a West Side pawn shop, accusing them of driving a stolen car and of stealing power tools from Home Depot.

A Home Depot employee called police about 2:20 p.m., saying a man had left the store with $800 in cordless power tools, fleeing in a Toyota Camry driven by another man.

An officer saw the Camry, which had been reported stolen from the CMC garage earlier in the day, parked outside Good Still Pawn Shop at 270 Amory St. about a half hour later, police said.

She stopped two men who left the store and got into the car, according to a release, and arrested Kurt Maclean, 36, no fixed address and Steven Howard, 32, of Manchester, after determining they had pawned a DeWalt cordless drill and a cordless framing gun that had been stolen from Home Depot, police said.

Maclean was charged with receiving stolen property, theft by deception, criminal liability to theft by unauthorized taking, driving after suspension and three warrants from Hooksett circuit court, police said.

Howard was charged with theft by unauthorized taking, receiving stolen property and theft by deception, police said.

Both men were scheduled to appear in Hillsborough County Superior Court Wednesday.

The stolen car was towed away after the owner was notified, police said.
