Prosecutors: Phone calls to homes link serial burglar to break-ins
Joshua Fowler, 34, formerly of Sandown and Derry, is on trial for playing a role in the break-ins that happened at homes in Derry, Londonderry and Hampstead between October 2009 and March 2010.
Prosecutors said Wednesday that a key piece of evidence against Fowler was his cell phone calls made to the targeted homes prior to the break-ins.
Judge N. William Delker rejected calls by defense lawyer Mark Stevens to dismiss the seven felony counts of burglary, saying jurors had enough evidence to decide the case.
He told jurors that he would never commit a burglary.
“I would never do that,” Fowler testified. “My house got broken into when I was a kid and it’s the worse feeling in the world.”
“I was working two jobs at the time and had my tax return of 11 grand,” Fowler testified. “I didn’t need any money.”
“I have no reason why that phone would be calling those residences,” Fowler testified. “I was not in possession of it.”
Blanchard confronted Fowler about the phone calls made to the homes on his cell phone, and trips to pawn shops that Fowler made that year.
Blanchard confronted Fowler citing the testimony of homeowners who claimed the valuables belonged to them.
A grand jury indicted Fowler in September 2011, but he did not appear in court until May 31 after becoming listed as a “Fugitive of the Week” by the U.S. Marshal’s Service.
