Armed prison escapee captured in Concord neighborhood
About 9:50 a.m., a caller in the area of District Five Road told Concord police she had observed a man walking up her driveway and that when she questioned as to what he was doing there he responded "Hiding." He then fled on foot toward Lakeview Drive, she said.
Near the intersection of District Five Road and Lakeview Drive police found a man, whom they latter identified as escapee Chad Lawlor.
"While speaking with the male subject, he made comments to the officers that he did not want to go back," Concord police said in a press release. "Given this statement and the overall appearance of the subject officers suspected that this subject was an escapee from N.H. State Prison."
Police ordered Lawlor to the ground to take him into custody.
"When one of the officers went to secure the subjects arms, the subject pulled his arm away," said Concord police. "As the officer attempted to control the subject’s arms, he noticed that the subject was attempting to reach for something up his sleeve. At that point the officer observed what appeared to be a knife."
The officer backed off and another shocked Lawlor with a Taser and he was then handcuffed.
It turned out Cawlor had both a small knife and a screwdriver hidden up his sleeve, according to police. Following the arrest, the original caller notified police a trailer on her property had been burglarized, an accusation police are investigating. So far, Cawlor is charged with resisting arrest, being a felon in possession of dangerous weapon, and prowling.
Lawlor was returned to the state prison and will be arraigned Monday at 6th Circuit District Division, Concord.
