FRANKLIN - Three suspects are in custody after a home invasion at Plains Court that seriously injured a resident of the home.
Police say they got a call around 8 a.m. Sunday about a suspicious man on Nelson Street. When police arrived, they found he had injuries to his head and leg. He was identified as the victim of an armed home invasion and was taken by ambulance to Franklin Regional Hospital and subsequently flown to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
State police, a state police K-9 and Franklin police went to the Plains Court home to investigate.
There, they determined that several suspects were involved and that they had apparently entered the victim's residence and were armed when they threatened him. Police say it appears the victim escaped and fled.
Police got a description of the vehicle that the suspects had apparently used as they fled the scene. Police put out a description of the vehicle - a newer model maroon pickup truck with temporary N.H. registration.
Around 9:20 a.m., a trooper driving on Route 11 in East Andover observed a vehicle that matched that description,
He was able to turn around and stop the vehicle. Believing the suspects were armed, he radioed his location and waited for backup.
Once the additional troopers, Franklin and Andover police officers arrived, they approached the vehicle.
Three of the suspects were inside including the driver, Trenton McDonald, 18, of Laconia, Tasha Lebeau, 19 also of Laconia and Dominic Ferrari, 18, whose last known address was in Gilford.
The three were taken into custody and police say they found numerous weapons inside the truck, which turned out to be stolen from Boscawen on Saturday.
McDonald was charged with armed robbery, criminal threatening, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and receiving stolen property.
Lebeau was charged with being an accomplice to commit armed robbery, criminal liability for conduct of another, driving after suspension and receiving stolen property.
Ferrari was charged with armed robbery, criminal threatening, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and receiving stolen property.
All three are being held at the Merrimack County jail on $30,000 cash bail (each) and are scheduled to be arraigned on Monday in Franklin District Court.
Police say the victim is currently in the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
The case remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Eric Shirley 223-4381 or Franklin police Officer Jonathan Ciavola 934-2535.
