Hudson man caught in alleged theft, detained by business owners
LITCHFIELD- A Hudson man was arrested Friday and charged with numerous offenses after being caught while allegedly stealing from a local business and detained by its owners.
According to Litchfield police, Nicholas Bariteau, 24, of Hudson was charged with two counts of theft, receiving stolen property and criminal trespass in connection with the incident.
Police were dispatched to Admiral Building Movers, located at 517 Charles Bancroft Highway, at approximately 9:40 a.m. Friday for a report of a theft in progress.
Lt. Heath Savage said Saturday that the business owners saw a suspicious vehicle pull into a their lot and travel toward the back of a junk yard on the property. When the owners went to the back of the lot, they witnessed Bariteau loading scrap metal and copper wire into his vehicle.
Savage said the owners blocked Savage’s vehicle in so he could not leave the property and kept him detained there until police arrived. He said there was no struggle between Bariteau and the business owners.
Police arrested Bariteau without incident by about 10 a.m. He was later released on $3,000 personal recognizance and $300 cash bail.
He is scheduled for arraignment on May 17 in Merrimack Circuit Court.
