MANCHESTER, NH – A homeless man was caught in the act of burglarizing a West Side apartment on Saturday.
On April 29, 2017 at approximately 1:05 p.m. West Side units were dispatched to 486 Dubuque St. for a report of a possible burglary in progress.
Several units arrived and began to set up a perimeter around the building. A 17-year-old resident met with police there who said he heard someone trying to get into his apartment through the rear door so he exited the front.
Police began to call out to the burglar, who was still inside the apartment. As this was happening, a man fled out the front door and was detained.
Kyle Beaulier, 26, homeless, was found in possession of several burglary tools, including a leatherman tool, a pry bar and chisel. David Cote, of 486 Dubuque St., the father of the 17-year-old who called in the burglary, responded to the scene and was able to identify several items in Beaulier’s possession including his wallet containing his ID, and multiple credit cards, a laptop computer, a backpack, a cell phone and a spare car key.
Beaulier was taken into custody and charged with burglary (a Class B felony); possession of burglary tools; theft by unauthorized taking (a felony); and resisting arrest. He also had an active, no-bail warrant out of Hillsborough County for a violation of probation. He will be arraigned at the 9th Circuit Court Manchester on Monday May 1, 2017.
