LACONIA — Two of four people allegedly involved in a home invasion in Meredith in March have been indicted by the Belknap County grand jury for their alleged roles in the incident.
Tyler Best, 37, of 35 Woodrow Ave. in Franklin faces two separate counts of armed robbery. The first is for allegedly pointing a gun at three people inside a Livingston Road home on March 6 and ordering them to the floor, or words to that effect.
The second armed robbery charge alleges Best pulled one of the female victims from her bed and struck her in the head with the butt of the gun.
Meghan Tighe, 24, of 95 Winter St. in Tilton faces one count of being an accomplice to armed robbery for allegedly accompanying Best to Livingston Road.
The female victim was able to help police identify Best by drawing a tattoo that matched one on Best's forearm. Other victims recognized one of the four people who allegedly entered the home at 4:10 a.m. by some clothing they were wearing when they were there earlier.
Police got a lead in the case on March 11 when a woman called them to report she had overheard the four people "bragging" about what they had done and that their comments included statements about assaulting people and stealing several things.
Meredith Police obtained a search warrant for the Franklin home that they were staying in at the time. During a search of the home, police found four credit cards belonging to the the female victim in a shed behind the house and one debit card in the home.
Best is being held on $5,000 cash only bail in the Belknap County House of Corrections and has been there since his arrest. Tighe is not incarcerated at this time.
