Manchester Crimewatch: Two men arraigned on felony burglary counts
MANCHESTER - Two men were arraigned Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division, one charged with burglary and the other with criminal liability to burglary, as the result of a Myrtle Street resident calling police after seeing two men enter a vacant building at 2 a.m. Friday.
Ricky Brodeur, 39, of 537 Lake Ave., was arraigned on a felony burglary charge. Police prosecutor Richard Brown said Brodeur, who has previous convictions for burglary and receiving stolen property, was found hiding in the basement of the building, sitting on a bag containing tools for cutting pipes.
Brown said that after his arrest, Brodeur told officers: "I didn't cut anything yet."
Conditions of Brodeur's $10,000 cash/surety bail bar him from the Myrtle Street address and bar contact with the second man arrested, Evan Sanborn, 22, of 42 Clark Road, Londonderry.
Sanborn was arraigned on a felony of criminal liability to burglary and a misdemeanor of resisting arrest.
Police prosecutor Carissa Pelletier said Sanborn was acting as a lookout and, after being tracked by a police dog unit, fled instead of surrendering immediately.
His bail was set at $5,000, with conditions barring contact with Brodeur and barring him from the Myrtle Street address.
Probable cause hearings for both men on the felony charges were set for May 7, and trial was set for June 5 for Sanborn on the misdemeanor.
Accused of child sexual assault
Terrell Thomas Wells, 28, of Riverdale, Ga., could enter no plea Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to two charges of aggravated felonious sexual assault.
Wells is accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl who was known to him. Police prosecutor Richard Brown, in seeking $50,000 cash/surety bail, said Wells admitted to police that he had sexually assaulted the girl. Brown said Wells was arrested in Georgia and returned to New Hampshire to face the charges, but there is concern that he might flee the state again.
Wells told Judge William Lyons that the alleged victim tells lies about him. As for the alleged sexual assaults, Wells said: "I've never done anything like that."
Lyons set bail at the amount requested by the prosecutor and imposed conditions that include no contact with the child, not going to her residence, and no unsupervised contact with anyone under age 18. A probable cause hearing was set for May 8.
Accused of endangering child
A woman who was found passed out and her 3-year-old daughter unsupervised in Livingston Park near Dorr's Pond Thursday was arraigned Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child.
Police prosecutor Richard Brown said Chasity Myrdahl, 33, of 236 Douglas St., was completely incapacitated when police arrived, so she was taken into protective custody. Brown said Myrdahl's water bottle contained alcohol.
In court, Myrdahl said she and her daughter had been out walking, and she had a drink. "It just caught up with me really fast," she said.
Brown requested $3,500 cash/surety bail, saying Myrdahl has been convicted of issuing bad checks, criminal mischief and shoplifting. Myrdahl asked for personal recognizance bail, saying she hasn't been in trouble lately. She told Judge William Lyons: "I'm a good mother."
Lyons set bail at $2,500 cash/surety, with bail conditions that include no alcohol consumption and no unsupervised contact with a child under age 18. Trial was set for June 5.
