NASHUA - An Amherst man convicted a year ago on a stalking charge was arrested again Monday evening on domestic violence-
related offenses for allegedly stalking an ex-girlfriend and breaking items in her Nashua apartment, police said.

Thomas Fallon, 48, of 39 Stearns Road, was taken into custody around 7:30 p.m., shortly after police responded to 104 Walnut St. for a report of a disorderly male. Police said officers found the man, later identified as Fallon, inside the apartment along with several items that were observed to be broken.

The woman who lives in the apartment told police she had been in a relationship with Fallon, and that nothing was broken when she left her apartment earlier in the day.

In reviewing Fallon's criminal record, police found that he was convicted of stalking in September 2015 in Milford district court. Based on that information, they upgraded Monday's stalking charge from a misdemeanor to a Class B felony.

Fallon was arraigned Tuesday in Nashua district court on that charge as well as four counts of criminal mischief, Class A misdemeanors.

Judge Robert Stephen, who conducted the arraignment via video conference from Valley Street jail in Manchester, read charging documents that accuse Fallon of smashing a ceramic ashtray, breaking a cookie jar and damaging a painting by throwing an object at it.

Police prosecutor Lt. Jonathan Lehto, who called Fallon a "danger to the community" due to his alleged failure to follow court orders and bail conditions, asked Stephen to amend Fallon's original bail of $10,000 cash to $50,000 cash.

"The state believes $50,000 cash bail is appropriate," Lehto said, citing entries on Fallon's record that include arrests on drug possession, simple assault, stalking, violating court orders, resisting detention and breach of bail.

Stephen granted Lehto's request and ordered Fallon, if he makes bail, to have no contact with the alleged victim or harass members of her family.

Fallon is scheduled to return to court on Oct. 24 for a probable cause hearing.
