When officers arrived on-scene, they made contact with these individuals and learned that an argument had taken place which became physical. During this time, Fellows threatened to kill and murder both subjects.  Fellows then physically attacked one of the subjects and began strangling them.  The other subject present at the time was able to pull Fellows away at which time he retreated to the upper level of the home.  Both subjects feared that Fellows was preparing to retrieve one of a number of firearms he had in the home at which point they left and called for help. With the assistance of Amherst and Nashua Police, the roadway was closed and a safe perimeter established.  Area neighbors were also evacuated due to the firearm related concern/s.  Phone communication was then initiated and after a short period of time, Fellows exited the home and surrendered to police.   

A search warrant was later drafted and executed at the home. During this time police noted property damage within the home, specifically a kitchen island with its top forcefully removed.  Police also seized a large quantity of firearms, ammunition and archery supplies. Fellows was processed on the above charges and held on preventative detention.  He was arraigned before the Hillsborough County Attorney (South) on today’s date and his preventative detention was upheld/continued.

When Vetrone arrived at the Hillsborough County Department of Corrections, she initially told processing officers that she already removed everything, but then came clean and admitted that she had more drugs concealed inside her body. Vetrone removed a number of baggies which contained approximately 33 suboxone pills, numerous suboxone strips, 1 alprazolam pill, and powders consistent with heroin/fentanyl and cocaine, all of which were wrapped with 2 rubber bands.

Charges:     Falsifying Physical Evidence (Felony)  

Court Date: October 10, 2019

Bail:             Personal Recognizance    

On September 28, 2019, a Manchester man was arrested by Merrimack Police on a felony arrest warrant for falsifying physical evidence. The warrant stems from an incident which occurred in Merrimack on May 22, 2019. On May 2, 2019, at 7:37 p.m., Merrimack Police responded to Greeley Street for the report of a vehicle that had been involved in a crash and was smoking.  When Officers arrived on scene, the vehicle was unoccupied and witnesses told officers two people had fled from the vehicle and ran toward Whitney Street. Within the same time frame, State Police was advising Merrimack officers that they were out with another vehicle on the Everett Turnpike by Exit 11, believed to be involved in an armed robbery, and that two males had fled into the woods. Merrimack Police dispatch then received several calls from multiple witnesses stating that two men were attempting to gain entry into a nearby business and they were holding large amounts of cash but they were unsuccessful. Soon after another witness reported that there were two males running up Hoyt Street. Merrimack Officers responded to Hoyt Street where they located the two involved males, one being Luis Cruz, and took them into custody. Both males had large amounts of cash in their possession. After further investigation, it was determined that the incident had stemmed from an alleged illegal cash exchange and road rage incident which originated in Nashua.

Charges:   Cruelty to Animals x 2

                  Unlicensed Dog

                  Failure to Vaccinate (Vaccination Required)  

Court Date: August 22, 2019  

Bail: Personal Recognizance

On the officer’s arrival, they learned that there was a German Shephard which had been living inside the residence, but had not been seen by anyone since at least the Fall of 2018.

The officers were able to determine that there was in fact a German Shephard located inside the residence.  The officers could see through the window that the dog, later identified as, “Turbo” looked extremely malnourished. Turbo was living in extreme squalor, with feces and urine surrounding him in the kitchen where he was confined. The officers could also see that the food and water dishes were empty, the water dish containing mildew. The officers attempted to make contact with the home owner, later identified as the above Cho, who did not reside there, but Cho did not return any calls or attempts to contact.  The residence appeared to not have been lived in for several months and there was grave concern for the condition of Turbo.  Entry into the residence was gained through an unlocked door and Turbo was taken into protective custody and released to the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire for care.

Approximately one day later, Cho contacted the Animal Control Officer after she learned the police were looking for her.  Cho eventually surrendered custody of Turbo to the Animal Rescue League. As of this date, Turbo’s health is grave and his adoptability is in question due to the neglect he endured. After an investigation, a warrant was completed for Cho who was charged with 2 counts of Cruelty to Animals, Failure to Register a Dog, and Failure to Vaccinate a Dog.  After her arrest, she was released on Personal Recognizance Bail and given a court date of August 22, 2019 in 9th District Court, Merrimack Division. Police are urging people who own pets, but find themselves unable to care for them, to contact their local police department or animal shelter to turn over ownership.  There are organizations which are willing to give your animal the care they deserve.

While speaking with Golomb, he indicated that he was in the mall for only a short period of time, however, roughly 40 minutes had passed after police were initially notified. At no point in time did he return to the vehicle to check on the dog.  Golomb was then taken into custody for animal cruelty, a misdemeanor level offense. 

Golomb was processed on the charge and released on personal recognizance bail.  Golomb is scheduled to appear before the Merrimack Circuit Court on July 23, 2019, to answer to the charge. The Merrimack Police Department would again encourage any and all pet owners to reconsider bringing their pets out and about for shopping excursions or errands on warm and sunny days. The interior of a vehicle can heat quite rapidly in a short amount of time which can lead to serious injury or death.  When in doubt, leave your pets home. It’s the safe and smart choice to make.

Name:          Obadiah Croteau                Age:  22
Address:       2 Executive Park Dr Rm 111 Merrimack, NH
Charges:       False Personation of Law Enforcement, Security    Services License Required, Emergency Medical and Trauma Services Acts Prohibited
Court Date:   March 21, 2019
Bail:               Personal Recognizance

 
On March 7, 2019, a Merrimack man was arrested on a warrant issued by the Merrimack Police Department.  The warrant stems from an investigation dating back to October 2018.  Police began investigating Obadiah Croteau after several incidents and reports from concerned parties regarding someone possibly impersonating a Police Officer.  Croteau had reportedly been seen on several occasions driving a green Dodge Charger with an overhead light bar, which led many to believe it was a NH State Police cruiser.  His car had been seen stopped at multiple accident scenes in Merrimack, where callers who were on the line with 911 believed based on seeing the car that there was actually an officer already on scene, when in fact, officers were not on scene.  At these accidents, Croteau was reportedly seen wearing a security uniform and represented himself to be a first responder and that he could provide medical care if needed.  In addition to accident scenes, it is also alleged that Croteau had stopped with a disabled vehicle and identified himself as being with a roadside service company, and had sought some personal information from the driver.  

The car in question, in addition to having an overhead light bar, was also equipped with a laptop computer mounted to the center console, cameras mounted to the front and rear windows, and most recently, graphics indicating that the vehicle is a ”K-9 unit.”  Croteau alleges that the car belongs to his company, Propel Entertainment, and that they provide executive protection and bodyguard services.  New Hampshire law requires any company or individual who is providing security services to be licensed by the state.  Neither Croteau nor his company holds any such license.  Additionally, Croteau was found to be in possession of an ID card printer and several different identification cards.  The ID cards pictured Croteau, and identified him by his alias as an “Executive Protection Officer” and a “First Responder” certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support.  In addition to the ID cards, there were also fabricated medical course certification cards that appear to have been manufactured.  A records check indicated that Croteau also does not hold any type of licensure through the state for emergency medical services. 

Based on Croteau’s course of conduct and failure to obtain licensing through the State of New Hampshire, Merrimack Police applied for and were granted an arrest warrant charging Croteau with False Personation of Law Enforcement (Class B Felony), Security Services License Required (Class A Misdemeanor) and Emergency Medical and Trauma Services Acts Prohibited (Class A Misdemeanor).   Croteau was arrested on the warrant and processed at Merrimack PD.  He was released on Personal Recognizance Bail and is scheduled to appear in the Hillsborough County Superior Court South on March 21, 2019 to answer to the charges.
