A second arrest has been made in Rindge related to dozens of tires piled on Cathedral Road in October, which caused a motor vehicle crash.

On Monday, Nov. 21, police arrested Noel Saveall, 19, of Tellico Plains, Tenn. Saveall, a former Rindge resident, was charged with one count of criminal mischief, one count of attempt to commit arson and one count of reckless conduct, all of which were charged as class B felonies, as well as a class B misdemeanor charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to a press release issued by Rindge Police Chief Rachel Malynowski Monday night.

Previously, on Oct. 27, police had made another arrest in relation to the case, but had withheld his name until the investigation was complete. Police have now identified that individual at Lucas Lambert, 18, of Jaffrey.

Saveall was released on personal recognizance bail and issued a court date for arraignment at the Cheshire Superior Court on Jan. 5 at 1 p.m.

Both men were arrested related to an incident in October, where it’s believed a group of individuals piled more than 30 tires on a crest on Cathedral Road. Police believe the intent was to light the tires on fire. However, before the tires could be lit, a driver hit the pile of tires, injuring one of the three passengers inside. Police announced at the time that due to the nature of the act, they would be pursuing arrests and felony-level charges.

In addition to Saveall and Lambert, Malynowski stated in Monday’s release that the department has identified several other participants involved in the incident, all of whom are minors. Police will not be identifying these people due to their ages.

“Investigation surrounding juvenile participation is ongoing and additional charges may pend. If charges are brought forward, they will be handled through the Juvenile Diversion process,” Malynowski stated. “No additional adult arrests are pending and no additional information about juvenile involvement will be released. At this time, the Rindge Police Department considers the investigation to be complete. We would like to thank our community members for information sharing and for your ongoing support.”
