LACONIA — Police here charged a Franklin man with one count of misdemeanor criminal mischief and one count of resisting arrest on Sunday night for allegedly running from police and damaging a car while fleeing.
Affidavits filed in Circuit Court said police responded to Dunkin' Donuts on South Main Street at 11:33 p.m. for a report of a man wearing a white T-shirt who was acting suspiciously by repeatedly walking in and out of the store. The caller said Gregory Brock, 28, of 11 Pine Street Apt. 1 also appeared to be "under the influence of drugs".
When an officer arrived, he saw Brock, who fit the description and was walking out of the store. Brock gave the officer his name and date of birth, but noted in his affidavit that Brock appeared "very nervous" and continued to make "furtive movements".
The officer learned Brock was wanted on an outstanding warrant but affidavits said when he went to place him under arrest, Brock ran in the direction of the nearby Meredith Village Savings Bank. While running, police said he dented the side door panel of a car that didn't belong to him, causing about $3,000 in damages.
After his video arraignment in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division, Brock was ordered held on $5,000 cash bail.
