LITCHFIELD — A Nashua man was arrested early Tuesday morning in Litchfield after being found stuck halfway through the broken window of a home, after police say he refused to pull over during an attempted traffic stop.

According to Litchfield police, at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday officers attempted to conduct a motor vehicle stop on a white Chevrolet Silverado they observed travelling along Derry Road at excessive speed. According to police, the Silverado did not slow or stop after the police officer activated his cruiser’s emergency lights and siren. Litchfield police pursued the truck, at which time they say the driver increased his speed and attempted to elude police. The truck was eventually located abandoned in a driveway of a home on Rotterdam Drive, a dead end.

At that time, Litchfield police requested the assistance of a New Hampshire State Police K-9 unit in the attempt to locate the operator of the truck. Litchfield police, New Hampshire state police and Hudson police officers began searching the area around Rotterdam Drive. While conducting their search, Litchfield police dispatchers received an emergency call from a resident on Rotterdam Drive, reporting an unknown man had entered their residence.

Litchfield police responded, and found a man, identified as Cornelius C. Stanley, Jr., 45, of Nashua, in the basement of the home hanging halfway out of a broken window.

Stanley was immediately taken into custody, held on $25,000 cash bail and arraigned at Nashua Superior Court Tuesday on the following charges: burglary, operating a motor vehicle while being a habitual offender, disobeying an officer, criminal mischief and speed.
