NASHUA – Two Nashua residents are facing a pack of felony charges after police accused them of an assortment of crimes dating back to April.

Police were called to a downtown home April 23 when a homeowner reported that firearms and a television set had been taken during a burglary. A second burglary was reported several days later by Mark LaFountain, 21, and Chelsea Williamson, 26, both of 32 Kinsley St., Apt. 7, police said.

The police department’s burglary unit investigated and determined that LaFountain had sold some of the items reported stolen April 23 to a pawn shop, and a warrant was issued for his arrest, police said.

On Sunday, police were called to the JC Penny store at 310 Daniel Webster Highway for the report of a robbery. Employees there said Williamson had punched an employee three times when the employee tried to stop a theft, police said.

Meanwhile, the burglary unit determined the burglary LaFountain and Williamson had reported had never occurred, police said.

The pair was arrested Tuesday and combined are facing nearly a dozen criminal charges. LaFountain is charged with Class A felony theft by unauthorized taking, Class B felony criminal liability to conduct of another to robbery and two counts of burglary, plus misdemeanor receiving stolen property and false report to law enforcement, police said.

Williamson faces the same burglary, theft and false report charges, as well as robbery, a Class A felony, police said.

Both were held on $50,000 cash bail, police said.

Williamson’s bail was reduced to $15,000 cash or surety by a Nashua district court judge, who also ordered that she be evaluated for admittance to the mental health court.

LaFountain will be arraigned on Thursday.

The Class A felony charges are punishable by up to 15 years in prison plus fines, and Class B felonies are punishable by up to seven years in prison plus fines.

Each of the misdemeanors is punishable by up to a year in jail plus fines, police said.
