Fisherman's body recovered from big lake

GILFORD — The New Hampshire Marine Patrol has recovered the body of Domenic Tringale, 63, a fisherman from Chelmsford, Mass., from the waters of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Tringale's remains were found through the use of a side-sonar devise from the Maine Warden Service and by a team of N.H. Department of Fish and Game divers. The team made the recovery in 62-feet of water at 11:55 a.m. on Wednesday.

Teams from Marine Patrol, Fish and Game, the Maine Warden Service and the Laconia Fire Department, which used its own sonar Monday morning, have been searching for Tringale since his 17-foot boat was found circling off the east side of Governor's Island with only a dog aboard Saturday morning.

Marine Patrol officials said Tringale's family told them he usually left in the early morning on his boat to go fishing and would return around 9:30 or 10 a.m.

According to the Lowell Sun, Tringale was a widower with two adult sons.

A Marine Patrol sergeant said their supposition was that a steering cable could have snapped and pitched him into the water. The cause of the accident is still being investigated by Marine Patrol.

Belmont Police make arrest for 2013 armed robbery of Dunkin' Donuts

BELMONT — After an 18-month investigation, police have charged a local man with armed robbery for holding-up the Rte. 3 Dunkin' Donuts store on October 21, 2013.

Travis W. Dickinson, 36, of Belmont was released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division on August 6, 2015.

Police said video surveillance shows Dickinson entered the store about 9:30 p.m. wearing a mask and gloves and brandishing a large knife. He allegedly ordered the two employees to give him money and he fled with about $630. No one was injured.

"It is also satisfying for law enforcement as a result of patient and methodical investigative processes to solve a crime of violence," said Lt. Richard Mann.

Mann went on to say that Belmont detectives engaged in a lengthy and time consuming investigation that involved interviews, warrants for cell phone activity, and interviewing witnesses that culminated in Dickinson's arrest.

According to Concord Police, Dickinson was charged with misdemeanor criminal liability for another for an offense committed Sept. 17, 2012. An on-duty lieutenant contacted yesterday by The Daily Sun did not know the outcome. He said the underlying charge was a theft that was committed by someone who was allegedly a passenger in his car.

2 new bicycles donated for Belmont Police patrols

BELMONT — Donations from Belmont Rotary and MC Cycle and Sport in Laconia have made two new police patrol bicycles available to the Belmont Police Department.

The department will be replacing the older Trek mountain bikes with newly outfitted Felt "Nine 80" mountain bikes.

"This will aid the Belmont PD bicycle officer in the busy summer season and further grow the bicycle unit's capabilities," said Lt. Richard Mann.

Police patrol the village area, the railroad tracks, town recreation areas and campgrounds.

The police also use the bicycles in a variety of ways. They participate in summer activities with the town like parades and Old Home Day.

The department also participates in the Safe Kids 500 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, wellness fairs at Belmont Elementary School and the Belmont Safety Day.

There are two bicycle officers: Patrol Officer Derek Gray and School Resource Officer/Patrol Officer Joe Marcello. Mann said the Belmont Police don't have an official bicycle registry but if a parent wants to call and give a brief description of a bicycle, the department records it in the event the bike is stolen.

Any requests for a bicycle patrol in a specific neighborhood should be made to the Belmont Police at 267-8350.
