FRANKLIN — Jeremiah Brewer, 32, was arraigned in Franklin District Court on Monday on charges of criminal trespass and criminal mischief related to an incident on Aug. 14, in which Boscawen police allege that Brewer kicked in the door of an apartment in that town in order to gain entry to a place where he wasn't welcome. Following the arraignment, Brewer was released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail and was given the date of Oct. 24 to appear for a case status hearing.
Boscawen police believe that Brewer kicked in the door of a King Street apartment at 1 a.m. on Aug. 14, breaking the door frame, and entered the apartment without reason to believe he had a right to be there. Both charges of criminal trespass and criminal mischief are Class B misdemeanors.
The recent charges bear resemblance to another incident, this one said to have occurred in Laconia, shortly after midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 21, when Brewer is alleged to have kicked in the door of an apartment on Dixon Street. Laconia police affadavits say that Brewer was accompanied by Venise Lyons, 26, of Concord, who believed that the resident of the apartment had stolen an iPad from her. Brewer is charged with assaulting the Dixon Street apartment resident, punching and kicking him, choking him and hitting him in the head with a skateboard and box fan, as well as stealing the victim's cell phone.
Laconia police documents listed Brewer as a resident of Tilton Avenue in Laconia, but Boscawen police stated that Brewer lived on Hale Road in Sanbornton.
