MANCHESTER, NH – A Hillsborough County Superior Court North grand jury indicted Clifton Caron, 28, of 455 Union St., Apt. 206, on three counts of theft by unauthorized taking, one count of breach of bail conditions and one charge of falsifying physical evidence.

According to the indictments, on the night of Feb. 17, Caron burglarized Sandler Training, Fresenius Kidney Center, Brady Sullivan Maintenance Office (a separately secured area of the Brady Sullivan Building), the National Education Association office, Certified Public Accountants,  Fit Wise Gym, Catholic Medical Center Amoskeag Family Practice and Summit LLC.

That same night, Caron allegedly tried to burglarize Nephrology Associates and Hazen and Sawyer.

Other indictments accuse him of an April 4 burglary at 69 Laurel St.  where, believing an investigation was about to begin, he altered the interior video surveillance camera to “impair its availability in such investigation, when he unplugged and manipulated the camera so that it stopped recording.”

The theft charges allege that on Feb. 19, he took a purse belonging to “K.O.”;  on March 11 he stole a back-up camera, the property of “R.P.” and on March 12 he took about $300 belonging to Grace Episcopal Church.

Fifteen of the 16 charges are class B felonies, each carrying a maximum sentence from 3 1/2 to 7 years in prison.  The bail violation charge is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of 12 months in jail.


Dezereih Regan-Gionet, 23, of 336 Amherst St., Apt. 2, the woman arrested for a Jan. 30 arson after she was recorded on video running from the scene of a fire carrying a can of gasoline, was indicted on 14 charges.  Those include five counts of arson, seven charges of reckless conduct, and two counts of escape.

Regan-Gionet is accused of setting a fire on Jan. 30 at 279 Silver St.  Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze but, according to the indictments, the fire caused more than $1,000 in damage.

The reckless conduct indictments allege Regan-Gionet actions placed seven people in danger of serious bodily injury. The escape charges allege that on March 1 she hid under a hospital bed in an attempt to hide from a police officer.

Meghan Hopkins, 18, of 764 Hall St. was indicted for resisting arrest/detention, serious bodily injury occurring.  Hopkins, while being arrested on April 20, allegedly struggled with Officer Brittany Battye and broke the officer’s nose.
