NASHUA — A woman was arrested after police said she broke into a 92-year-old man's home and tied him up with duct tape while she robbed him.
Nashua police said on June 8, 2017, they received a report of a burglary and upon arrival made contact with a 92-year-old victim.
He told police that the suspect had restrained him with duct tape and had also mentioned having a knife during the burglary.
Police said the suspect subsequently stole numerous items from the home and then stole the victim’s vehicle in order to flee the scene.
As the investigation continued, police learned the suspect utilized the victim’s stolen debit card to withdraw money from various Nashua banks and to make fraudulent purchases at Kohl's.
Police said they eventually identified Maryanne Jacobsmeyer, 51 of Nashua, as a suspect and she was arrested on Wednesday. After the arrest, police learned that Jacobsmeyer had committed a burglary at the victim's residence prior to the June 8 incident.
Jacobsmeyer is charged with kidnapping and robbery, both Class A felonies, two counts of burglary, falsifying physical evidence, three counts of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer and theft by deception, all Class B felonies.
Police said a review of Jacobsmeyer’s criminal record revealed prior theft-related convictions, which enhanced her theft charges in this incident to Class B felonies. Jacobsmeyer is also certified as a Habitual Offender through the New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles, so another Class B felony charge was levied against her.
Jacobsmeyer is currently being held at the Hillsborough County House of Corrections on $250,000 cash bail pending her arraignment on August 3rd, 2017 in the 9th Circuit District Division-Nashua Court.
The Nashua Police has asked anyone with information about this incident to contact the Nashua Crime Line at (603)-589-1665.
