SANBORNTON -- State police say a Texas man was arrested Tuesday during a routine inspection of the truck he was driving, after troopers determined he was wanted on fraud charges.
According to state police, on Tuesday Trooper Kevin Raymond of the New Hampshire State Police – Troop G was conducting commercial motor vehicle inspections when he stopped a 2017 Kenworth towing a 2017 Utility reefer trailer along Interstate 93 southbound at the Sanbornton rest area.
