A Colorado man arrested in September after allegedly trying to break into Shaw’s in Peterborough has been extradited to Wisconsin.

Peterborough Prosecutor Vint Boggis said Monday afternoon that a court case involving Christopher N. Huber, 46, of Canyon City, Colorado, will no longer be pursued in the state of New Hampshire, with charges of fugitive from justice, receiving stolen property, and loitering not being carried forward. 

“He’s wanted in Colorado and in two counties in Wisconsin,” said Peterborough Prosecutor Vint Boggis, in a phone interview Monday afternoon. “He waived extradition. Wisconsin will have him first.”

Huber was arrested in Peterborough on Sept. 4, after police investigated an alarm activation at Shaw’s. After arriving on scene, police found that a door of the grocery store had been tampered with, but no one ultimately gained access to the inside of the building. 

Prior to the alarm’s activation, police were investigating a white Toyota 4Runner parked on Dublin Road. Police would later find out that the vehicle was stolen in Colorado. 

Police would later find Huber at Alltown Market and link him to the stolen car and attempted break in after questioning him. 

Multiple warrants having been issued for Huber in Wisconsin, according to court documents, charging him with bail jumping, three counts of theft of movable property worth less than $2,500 (repeat offense), theft by false representation (repeat offender), driving or operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent, failure to appear, operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent, vehicle theft, and misdemeanor theft.

Boggis said he was unsure what charges Huber is facing in Colorado.
