Tampering charge for city resident

A Nashua man was arrested last week for allegedly tampering with witnesses and informants, according to the city police department.

Martin McHugh, 29, of 60 Linton St., was charged with a felony count of tampering and later released on $750 cash only bail pending his arraignment in a Nashua courtroom.

On July 27, officers with the Nashua Police Department received a report of possible tampering with witnesses and informants after the woman stated she had been contacted by McHugh numerous times asking her to provide a false statement.

Investigation by Nashua officers found McHugh had attempted to induce the woman into changing her statement in a case that is pending at Hillsborough County South Superior Court. The case stems from McHugh’s arrest on Dec. 21, 2015 when he was charged with indecent exposure and lewdness.
