EXETER — An Exeter man was arrested last week and charged with two counts of felony burglary for allegedly entering two unlocked homes at night in June 2013 and stealing money while occupants slept, Exeter police said Tuesday.
Exeter police Capt. Stephan Poulin said in a news release that William Gulliver, 18, confessed to entering the two homes after technicians at the State Police Forensics Lab in Concord identified two fingerprint impressions belonging to Gulliver on evidence.
Gulliver was arrested last Thursday.
Poulin said several burglaries occurred at unlocked homes in the Exeter Farms and Hunter Place neighborhoods while occupants slept on the night of June 18-19, 2013. Some homeowners reported missing money, Poulin said, while several others “believed that someone had attempted to enter their homes during the night but did not find anything missing.”
Detectives interviewed Gulliver after the state forensics lab issued an April 10 report that identified his fingerprints on evidence from two of the homes, police said.
“The NHSP Forensic Lab did a great job on this,” Poulin wrote in an email Tuesday. “They are top-notch.”
Poulin said Gulliver turned himself in on an arrest warrant and was released on $2,500 bail. He is scheduled to appear for arraignment at Exeter District Court on Sept. 9.
