Police say burglars called AAA when getaway car got stuck

GILFORD — Police have arrested two people they say are responsible for a March 20 Foxborough Drive burglary by tracking them through a call they made to AAA to get them out of a ditch shortly after they allegedly fled the scene. A large amount of property was missing after the forced entry, including jewelry.
Police said the evidence they collected near the house indicated the getaway vehicle had likely gotten stuck and the occupants had called a tow truck. A call to a local towing contractor revealed the occupants had indeed called AAA for held.
Thirty hours later, Belmont police located the vehicle in question and its two occupants — Gordon Potter, 34, of 281 North State Street in Concord (the N.H. State Prison) and Kerry Duggan, 27, of 15 Dakin St in Concord — were arrested.
During the subsequent search of the car, police found a portion of the stolen jewelry.
Potter was charged with one count of felony burglary by prison officials. He is incarcerated, said police, for an unrelated parole violation. He was taken to Belknap County House of Corrections and will face a 4th circuit Court, Laconia Division judge today.
Duggan is being held on $1,000 cash bail and is charged with one count of felony criminal conduct of another. She is also scheduled to appear in court today.
