LACONIA — A former Tilton man found passed out on the front lawn of a home on Fair Street Thursday morning was arrested by police for outstanding warrants.
Police said Shane Duval, 29, whose address is listed as transient, was wanted by Laconia Police for driving after revocation. He was also wanted on a warrant issued by Belknap County Superior Court for failing to appear for a criminal hearing in July.
According to paperwork obtained from the Superior Court, Duval was arrested by Laconia Police on July 8 when an officer noticed a car parked with its headlights on just before midnight in the Premium Mart, which was closed.
Police determined the car was registered to Duval and that his license and registration were under suspension. Duval was also wanted at the time by Concord Police for receiving stolen property.
When Duval got out of his car, police said a 4-inch "fixed-blade survival knife" knife allegedly fell from his belt and an expandable metal baton was next to the driver's seat. After being placed in handcuffs, Duval was searched for weapons and a small plastic bag with a substance that later field-tested positive for methamphetamine. He also had $1,223 in cash in his pocket.
Affidavits indicate that Duval was convicted for a Class B felony for second-degree assault in Merrimack County Superior Court in 2008.
He was charged with one count of possession of methamphetamine and two counts of being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon and released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail.
Duval appeared for his arraignment in the Belknap County Superior Court and bail was continued at $5,000 personal recognizance.
His failure show up for a second hearing triggered the bench warrant.
