Couple charged in connection with Exeter burglaries
Exeter police have charged Terry Deschenes, 23, with a felony count of burglary and a second count of felony conspiracy to commit burglary.
Exeter is the latest department to bring charges against Deschenes for his alleged role in the string of break-ins that police say involved more than a dozen homes on the Seacoast and in Kennebunk, Maine.
Exeter police also announced that an arrest warrant has been issued for Reed for two felony counts of burglary.
Exeter police said jewelry and electronics were stolen in the Exeter burglaries. After the burglaries, police said they believe the pair would pawn the stolen goods to then buy drugs.
According to a Kensington police affidavit, Reed confessed to several of the burglaries during an interview with Kensington and Exeter detectives after the two were arrested in Biddeford, Maine, on Dec. 4.
Reed told police that the burglaries began in Exeter and were followed by burglaries in Kensington and Hampton Falls. While the affidavit mentions a confession regarding those burglaries, police have said they also believe the two are tied to other burglaries in Hampton.
"Terry stated during the interview he (knowingly) drove his vehicle in low traffic neighborhoods in Kensington, Hampton Falls and Exeter with Shannon looking for homes to burglarize. He acted as a lookout while Shannon entered the residential homes and stole items," the affidavit said.
