Jaffrey police log: Sept. 12. 2013
Wednesday, Sept. 4
Motor vehicle accident: At 1:05 p.m. while on Gilmore Pond Road, Gary Morello, 58, of Jaffrey, driving his 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser, struck a deer that ran out into the road. The deer had to be put down by police due to injuries. Morello was not injured and his vehicle sustained minor damage and was driven from the scene.
Arrest: At 6:50 p.m., officers were dispatched to Stratton Road for a domestic disturbance with a possible assault. Investigation revealed that a man had allegedly assaulted a woman after an argument. Police arrested David Gibson, 47, of Jaffrey and charged him with two counts of simple assault and being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon, as officers located a firearm in the residence. He was released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail and given a court date of Oct. 3.
Thursday, Sept. 5
Theft: At 2:55 p.m., a Coburn Way resident reported that, while her vehicle was parked on Bleak Street, it had been broken into and several hundred dollars worth of items, including a wallet with $200 in cash and other items, in the vehicle were missing. The case is currently under investigation.
Arrest: At 9:10 p.m., officers received a 911 call for an unknown medical emergency made by a resident of Main Street. The resident, Sanfird Niemela, 75, of Jaffrey, told the ambulance crew he did not need to go to the hospital. As this was more than the third occasion that Niemela has dialed 911 for no legitimate purpose, he was given a summons to appear in court on Oct. 3 for misuse of 911. Niemela was transported to Cheshire House of Corrections in protective custody for alleged intoxication.
Friday, Sept. 6
Fire: At 5:26 a.m., police responded to a residence on Turnpike Road for a structure fire and assisted with traffic control and preliminary investigation into the fire that so far fire officials have been calling accidental.
Monday, Sept. 9
Arrest: At 8:45 a.m., officers located a man on Stratton Road whom Jaffrey police had an active warrant for breach of bail. The man, David Gibson, 47, of Jaffrey, flagged the cruiser down, and he was taken into custody. The breach of bail was related to Gibson’s previous arrest on Sept. 5, when he violated bail conditions by going to a residence he was ordered not to enter. Due to the fact that there were no available bail commissioners, he was released with a court summons for Oct. 3.
