Two men indicted for 2011 burglaries

PETERBOROUGH — Two Peterborough men were indicted this month on charges related to two 2011 burglaries in Peterborough.

A grand jury in Hillsborough Country Superior Court indicted Jackson A. Piscopo, 20, of Peterborough on one count of burglary and one count of theft by unauthorized taking, both Class A felonies, related to a burglary at an Old Dublin Road residence and one court of burglary, a Class B felony, related to a burglary at Kate’s Cuts, a barber shop on Route 202 North.

The grand jury also indicted Nicholas Kierstead, 20, of Peterborough on a charge of burglary related to the incident at Kate’s Cuts.

According to the indictments, Piscopo entered a home on Old Dublin Road between Sept. 19 and Sept. 21, 2011, and took items valued at more than $1,500, including a laptop computer and 25 bottles of wine.

Kierstead also participated in the Old Dublin Road burglary, according to Assistant Hillsborough County Attorney Kenneth Perkes. He was convicted of burglary earlier in the year and sentenced to 12 months in jail.

Piscopo and Kierstead also allegedly entered Kate’s Cuts sometime between Sept. 1 and Sept. 2, 2011. The indictments don’t specify what was taken, but after the two men were arrested in July, Peterborough Police Chief Scott Guinard said about $100 in cash was stolen.

Piscopo has been released on $10,000 personal recognizance. Kierstead is serving his sentence on the burglary conviction at the Hillsborough County House of Corrections.

No court dates have been set.
