A New Ipswich man has been indicted on five felonies after he allegedly tampered with witnesses on the scene of an accident in Rindge in May.

Dylan Lopipero, 20, was recently indicted on three counts of tampering with witnesses and informants and two counts of criminal solicitation to commit falsifying physical evidence by a Cheshire County grand jury.

Lopipero was arrested by Rindge police on May 19 following an accident on May 6. Police originally arrested Lopipero on 14 charges.

Lopipero crashed a 2015 BMW 335 into a telephone at the intersection of Cutter Hill Road and Old New Ipswich Road.

Indictments allege that Lopipero asked one witness to falsely testify about the accident and demanded that two other witnesses not call police. He also asked the latter two witnesses to remove his car from the scene before police arrived.

Joseph Loughery, 59, of Dublin was indicted on three counts of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon after allegedly firing a .22 caliber rifle at a home in Roxbury on April 7.

Bullets hit the front door, front door knob, shattered a window, and damaged a printer in the house, placing the occupants of the home in danger, according to indictments.

Sequain Ahadzie-Felder, 20, of Brooklyn, New York, was indicted on one count of fraudulent use of a credit card after allegedly using a credit card issued to Real Power, Inc. and/or one of its employees to purchase goods.

Ahadzie-Felder allegedly used the card to obtain over $1,500 in merchandise on April 14 in Rindge, knowing he was unauthorized to use the card.
