A standoff and all-day search for an attempted robbery suspect concluded early Tuesday morning in Bedford, New Hampshire, resulting in the arrest of a Manchester man.
Alexander Theriault, 28, was arrested on multiple charges, including burglary and reckless condcut.
Police were tipped off to Theriault's whereabouts at a Dunkin' Donuts in Bedford, where he subsequently fled upon the arrival of officers. After a K-9 track and drone were deployed, officers located Theriault several hours later and placed him under arrest.
Police had initially been called to a home on Ray Street in Bedford shortly after 4 a.m. Monday after a report that a man attempted to break in. When officers arrived, police said the same suspect was believed to have attempted to break into an apartment on Parker Avenue. In that incident, police said he allegedly pointed a gun at the doorways of the apartments.
The suspect was later identified as Theriault, police said.
While attempting to find Theriault, the Manchester Police SWAT Team was brought in and a perimeter was set up in the area of Ray Street - north of Appleton Street.
Area resident Taylor Palmer said she heard yelling outside her house around 6 a.m., then saw flashing lights.
"They just were just like, 'Come outside with your hands up,'" Palmer recalled. "I had just woke up. I was late for work. Coming down, I see all these cops outside."
Police later said Theriault ran away as soon as they showed up.
"They made everybody down there leave their house," Palmer recalled. "Very crazy morning."
Theriault will be arraigned Tuesday in Hillsborough Superior Court North. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
