MANCHESTER — The man who led Laconia police to surround an apartment building at 20 Jewett St. last week was arraigned in Ninth Circuit Court in Manchester yesterday following his arrest in the city on Tuesday night.
Robert Audette, 26, is being held in the Valley Street Jail in Manchester in lieu of $50,000 cash bail charged with criminal threatening and felon in possession of a firearm, both class B felonies. Prosecutor Jim Sawyer said that his request for cash bail was not contested.
Audette was arrested and arraigned on separate charges by the Manchester police. Sawyer said that when Audette is returned to Belknap County is an "administrative decision."
Police allege that Audette pointed a shotgun at another man while they and others were in the Jewett Street apartment around noon on Tuesday, Oct. 27. He apparently fled the scene before police secured the building and surrounding area, but a shotgun and ammunition were recovered during a later search of the building.
