MANCHESTER, NH – Manchester Police officers received information that a wanted Queen City man was inside of a West Side apartment at 4 p.m. Aug. 26. Multiple officers arrived to 63 Goffe St. to locate and arrest Daniel Pihl, 25 of Manchester. Pihl had an active arrest warrant for theft of a firearm stemming from an August 18 theft of a Glock 21.
Officers made contact with the homeowner, Charles Ali, 28, who confirmed Pihl was inside of his house. Officers made repeated calls to Pihl hoping he would exit the home on his own volition. Pihl choose not to vacate the home, so members of the Manchester Police SWAT team were called to the scene, however Pihl exited the home as the SWAT team arrived. He was taken into custody without incident, but the gun was not recovered on scene, so the SWAT team entered the home to clear it for the resident.
The SWAT team encountered two men who refused to vacate the premises. They were identified as Dorbor Nyonee, 27, and Deng Lauly, 25, both of Manchester. Both men were arrested for resisting arrest/detention.
Lt. Brian O’Keefe said the stolen gun was not recovered.
Pihl and Lauly will appear in the 9th Circuit Court on August 27, 2015. Nyonee was released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in court on September 30, 2015.
