School district official says stolen truck was taken from inside Huot Center building

LACONIA — School District officials said yesterday that the Ford F-350 pickup allegedly stolen by a Florida man with ties to the area was locked in the automotive section of the Huot Technical Center before it was stolen.

Business Administrator Ed Emond said the building is checked daily throughout the weekend and was locked. He said the school district is working to see how the two men who allegedly stole the truck got into the building.

Dennis LeFebvre, 33, of 14188 44th Court in Summerville, Fla., has been charged with one felony count of receiving stolen property, driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident.

Laconia Police, who arrested LeFebvre on an outstanding warrant, gave his address in its police log as 14 Kimball Road, #27 in Gilford.

Belmont Police said yesterday it appears LeFebvre was with a second man, who has not been identified.

Emond said he saw pictures of the truck, and said there appears to be about $2,000 damage done to the undercarriage.

Lt. Rich Mann said his department’s investigation shows the truck apparently went off the road on Mile Hill Road and struck an embankment, then returned to the road.

He said a resident called the police and a Belmont officer saw the truck and stopped it on Dutile Road.

LeFebvre is being held on $750 cash only bail in the Belknap County House of Corrections.
