Man accused of burglarizing neighboring homes

BARNSTEAD – A local man is being held on $750 cash-only bail after allegedly burglarizing two homes on Dam Site Road.

Officer in Charge Joe McDowell said Adam Jenna, 34, came to the attention of local police when a witness identified him and his vehicle as being in the area of the two burglaries.

McDowell said his department worked with police from Gilmanton, Bristol, and Pittsfield, and executed a search warrant at Jenna's home on Andover Road.

He said they found items consistent with items reported stolen from two Barnstead homes.

McDowell said police are continuing to investigate, and said additional charges against Jenna could be forthcoming.
