Grand jury hands up indictments

Locals charged with array of offenses

NASHUA – A Nashua man who, in August, allegedly threatened a person with a semi-automatic BB gun then tried to hide the weapon from police has been indicted on three related charges.

Randy Katanga, 25, of 5 Denton St., Apt. 1, is among several Nashua area residents for whom the grand jury for the November term of Hillsborough County Superior Court-North handed up indictments Thursday.

An indictment is not an indication, or proof of, guilt, but represents the grand jury’s determination that enough evidence exists for prosecutors to move the case forward in Superior Court.

Katanga was indicted on one count each of criminal threatening – deadly weapon; felon in possession of a dangerous weapon; and falsifying physical evidence (alter, destroy or hide), all felonies.

The indictments allege Katanga of attempting to place a person in fear of imminent bodily injury by pointing a CO2-powered BB gun at him or her, possessing the gun after a previous felony conviction, and concealing the weapon with the purpose to impair its availability in an impending investigation, on Aug. 24 in Manchester.

Other local residents indicted in Hillsborough North this month include:

 Naomi Marden, 37, of 19 Birchwood Drive, Milford. Three counts, possession of a controlled drug, Class B felonies, for allegedly possessing quantities of the drugs clonazepam, buprenorphine and amphetamine, on Sept. 12 in Manchester.

 Justine Mollomo, 31, of 62 Robinson Road, Nashua. Two counts, insurance fraud, felonies, for allegedly submitting to her insurance company statements and documents containing false, incomplete or misleading information, claiming she lost her Rolex watch worth more than $1,500 at Gillette Stadium, and presenting false information while testifying under oath during an examination regarding the claim, on March 2 and July 26, 2017, in Nashua and Manchester.

 David Previe, 27, of 19 Buckridge Drive, Amherst. One count each, second-degree assault – strangulation, felony, and domestic violence, misdemeanor, for allegedly engaging in the strangulation of an intimate partner, and grabbing the individual by the throat, on Sept. 12 in Goffstown.
