A New Hampshire man is facing numerous charges after leading police on a chase through multiple towns at speeds up to 115 mph on Tuesday night.

Around 11 p.m., New Hampshire State Police attempted to stop a 2011 GMC Sierra pickup truck with Massachusetts plates on Interstate 93 north in Manchester after the vehicle passed through a construction zone in Londonderry at a high rate of speed. It was also discovered that the truck had just been reported stolen out of Boston, Massachusetts.

Police pursued the vehicle up I-93 from Manchester onto Interstate 89 in Enfield, deploying multiple tire deflation devices on the truck. O’Dwyer continued to drive with heavily sparking rims that started multiple brush fires.

The driver - Christopher O’Dwyer, 42, of Salem - is charged with receiving stolen property, reckless conduct, disobeying an officer and conduct after an accident.

O’Dwyer refused a bail commissioner and is currently being held at the Merrimack County House of Correction pending a video arraignment on Wednesday morning.
