Patch - 07-19


CONCORD, NH — Members of the New Hampshire State Police Mobile Enforcement Team tracked down and arrested a man convicted of second-degree murder in the 1980s who is out on parole but wanted on violations. At just before 7:45 p.m. on Thursday night, a state trooper spoke to two bicyclists in the parking lot of the Lilac Mall in Rochester after observing them riding on Route 125 North "in a manger which had been obstructing vehicular traffic," according to Sgt. Mark Hall of the NHSP. One of the bike riders – a woman – matched the description of a suspect involved in a theft incident at a local convenience store.
