Two held on receiving stolen property, drug charges after crash in Center Harbor

LACONIA – Two Dorchester, Massachusetts, residents were ordered held on cash bail Wednesday after one was charged with being in possession of a car that was allegedly stolen while the other was charged with possession of crack cocaine.

Affidavits obtained from the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division, said Ki Perryman, 36, of 15 Breton St. in Dorchester and Guy Ahart, 43, of the same address were two of three people in a single-car accident on Route 25 at 5:30 a.m. that day.

Police said they determined the car Ahart was driving had been reported stolen from Medford, Massachusetts, on Tuesday at 3 p.m. They said they contacted the owner, who told them he had left the car running while stopping at a business for a quick transaction.

Police also said they found a crack pipe in the glove box and a small amount of crack cocaine on Perryman.

Perryman was ordered held on $500 cash-only bail and Ahart was held on $1,000 cash bail.

Affidavits also say the two are free on bail from Massachusetts and each is facing charges from that state of carjacking by gunpoint. In his argument for personal recognizance bail, a Laconia public defender said the Massachusetts charges will likely be dismissed during their court appearance because of exculpatory evidence.
