Center Harbor woman who skipped court date arrested at concert in Gilford

GILFORD — A woman who was wanted on bench warrants from three different communities was located and taken into custody Thursday night while attending a show at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook.
Mackenzie Seely, 25, of 541 Dane Harbor Road, Center Harbor was ordered held on $300 cash and $5,000 personal recognizance bail after appearing in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday morning.
Gilford Police Chief Kevin Keenan said an officer on detail duty saw Seely Wednesday night and recognized her as someone who failed to appear in circuit court to face a charge of operating after suspension.
She was held overnight on the Gilford charge but Seely also faces two counts of theft by unauthorized taking from Meredith Police for allegedly taking her father's GMC pickup and his laptop on April 5. A warrant was issued for her arrest.
On April 17, Laconia Police found her in a home when they responded to a burglary shortly after 1 p.m. on Appleton Street.
Mackenzie allegedly sent a text message to the owner who she knew and asked him to tell police the house was empty but police were able to identify her through her text message.
Police surrounded the house and eventually got a key and located her hiding under the bed in the master bedroom.
Laconia Police charged her with criminal trespass and resisting arrest.
She pleaded not guilty but failed to show for her circuit court trial on May 24 and another bench warrant was issued.
On May 24, she failed to appear for a court date regarding the Meredith felonies and a third bench warrant was issued.
As of 4:30 p.m. yesterday, Seely was still incarcerated in the Belknap County House of Corrections.
