Police arrest two in connection with grave vandalism in Colebrook

COLEBROOK — Two people have been arrested and Colebrook police say they expect to issue an arrest warrant for a third person in connection with vandalism at the Colebrook Village Cemetery last month during which the remains of a local businessman were disturbed.  

The violation of the grave containing the late Edward Nash was reported May 12 and on Wednesday, Colebrook police said they had arrested Michael Day, 37, of Columbia, and Ginette B. Dowse, 71, of Beecher Falls, Vt., and were preparing to take a third, and possibly a fourth, into custody.

Day was charged with interference with a cemetery and criminal mischief, while Dowse was charged with conspiracy to commit interference with a cemetery for allegedly transporting Day and another person to Colebrook Village Cemetery where Day and the other, unnamed individual broke into the concrete underground vault that held Nash’s metal coffin.

The charges are Class B felonies and upon conviction, carry sentences of between of 3 ½ to seven years in prison and a fine of up $2,000.

Colebrook Police Lt. Paul Rella said Day is being held on $5,000 cash bail at the Coos County Jail, pending arraignment on June 19 while Dowse posted a $1,000 cash bond and is scheduled to appear in court July 10.
