Published DateLACONIA — A 22-year-old city man was indicted yesterday by a Belknap County grand jury for two counts of burglary, once count of theft by unauthorized taking, and one count of criminal mischief.
Aaron Marchione, 22, formerly of 53 Parsonage Drive was arrested in early December after allegedly breaking into a neighbor's home and stealing guns and jewelry.
Laconia Police made the arrest when the homeowner returned to Windemere Heights and startled Marchione who allegedly fled the home through the front door but not before breaking the glass in the bathroom window in an initial attempt to escape.
He was charged by Laconia Police after they investigated the allegedly burglary and indicted by a Belknap County grand jury in January for the December burglary.
The recent indictments reflect an ongoing investigation by city police into other burglaries in the city. An indictment is not a statement of guilt or innocence. It is statement by an independent grand jury that determines there is enough evidence to warrant a trial.
Specifically, he was indicted yesterday for allegedly entering a building or occupied structure on or about August 20, 2012 at 456 Pleasant St. and for allegedly entering a building or occupied structure at 377 Pleasant St. on or about September 26, 2012.
The recent rounds of indictments charge Marchione with one count of criminal mischief for allegedly throwing a rock through a glass door during one Pleasant Street burglary and one count of theft by unauthorized taking for having jewelry in his possession from another Pleasant Street burglary.
Marchione served a year in prison after pleading guilty on January 20, 2010 for a string of burglaries over the summer of 2010. Judge Larry Smukler sentenced him to 1 1/2 to 4 years in state prison with 6 months of the minimum suspended.
He was released from prison on December 12, 2011 and records obtained from Merrimack County Superior Court indicate he faces at least three probation and/or parole violation since then but before his recent arrests.
Marchione is being held on $10,000 cash only bail stemming from his arrest in December of 2010 and remains in the Belknap County House of Corrections.
