BELMONT – Police said an alert shopper in Shaw's Supermarket called the police yesterday after recognizing the man whose picture ran in the Dec. 5 edition of the Daily Sun.
Donald Adams, 23, no address given except Belmont, was photographed on his way into the Route 106 Irving Station where he allegedly stole a carton of cigarettes when the clerk became distracted.
After several people recognized him from the photo, police learned who he was and had already sworn out a warrant for his arrest when they received a call last night from Shaw's.
Lt. Richard Mann said yesterday that there were 11 outstanding warrants for Adams, primarily for theft. The arrest warrants had been issued to police from Laconia, Gilford, Tilton and Belmont as well as bench warrants from circuit courts in Concord, Laconia and Franklin.
Gilford Lt. Kris Kelley said Adams had been arrested twice recently – both times for stealing cigarettes from convenience stores. Kelley noted that because of Adams previous convictions, Gilford's two outstanding warrants were for felony theft.
Adams appeared in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division yesterday and was order held in lieu of $6,500 in a combination of unpaid fines and bail.
