BEDFORD — Police responding to a call about an allegedly drunk woman at a local restaurant led to the arrest of a wanted man.
Bedford police responded to a restaurant on South River Road about 2:10 p.m. Wednesday for a report of an intoxicated woman. Officers made contact with both the woman and a man who was with her.
Police say the man at first gave false identification and ran from the scene. Officers set up a perimeter around the area and called for help from a New Hampshire State Police K-9 unit.
The police dog began to track the man, later identified as Tristan Roukey, 28, of Londonderry. Witnesses were able to direct police to Roukey who was hiding behind a business nearby.
Roukey, who had been wanted on suspicion of burglary and obstructing the report of a crime, was taken into custody and was being held on $10,000 cash bail pending his arraignment in Merrimack District Court on charges of false report to law enforcement, resisting arrest and stalking.
