Maine Man Wanted For Burglary Arrested In New Hampshire
A man wanted on burglary and other charges by Maine State Police has been arrested in New Hampshire.
39-year-old Matthew Thompson has been sought by State Police since September for a burglary in Lebanon, in which hundreds of dollars worth of tools were stolen from a home. He also had an outstanding warrant for violation of conditions of release from an incident in May, in which he and two other suspects tried to steal a shed in Lebanon by dragging it down the street. Police had previously tracked Thompson to a house in Lebanon, but he was able to evade arrest.
On Sunday, State Police learned that Thompson was staying at a home in Rochester, New Hampshire and requested help from the U.S. Marshal-New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in arresting him. He was taken into custody at 8:00 Tuesday morning at the residence, without incident.
Thompson has been transported to the Strafford County Jail, where he will be held pending extradition to Maine.
