    Woman Wakes to Find Stranger in Bedroom

    Police were called to a home in Concord, New Hampshire, on Thursday after a woman woke up to find an unknown man inside her bedroom.

    The Manchester Street resident told police she woke up and found a male subject standing in her bedroom. The man allegedly told the woman the he had entered her home through an unlocked door and that he was going door-to-door seeking "work." He also allegedly told the woman he was there to "check on her welfare."

    The man exited the home upon request. The woman discovered her purse lying on the floor where the intruder had been standing. She informed responding officers of missing debit cards and cash.

    The woman described the suspect as a white male in his early 20s, wearing a black baseball cap and a black sweatshirt with pink lettering.

    After searching the area surrounding the home, police were able to locate an individual fitting the woman's description of the suspect.

    James Gagne, 21, was detained. A short-while later the victim was able to positively idea the suspect.

    Gagne was booked at Concord Police Department where he refused bail. He was subsequently transported to the Merrimack County House of Corrections. Gagne was found to be in possession of heroin and cocaine after a search.

    Gagne will be arraigned Friday on burglary and drug charges.
