Officers spoke with Marple and informed him of this warrant. Marple stated he would immediately go to the Hooksett Police Department and turn himself, which he did shortly after.

He was released on $1,000.00 personal recognizance bail and was given a court date of Dec. 19, 2016.

Marple is also at risk of losing his property due to unpaid taxes.

Marple owes Hooksett more than $18,000 as a result of unpaid taxes from 2013 through 2015. This number does not include 2016's taxes from July and December.

His 11 Dartmouth Street home was tax deed by the town in June, meaning the town now owns the property in lieu of unpaid taxes.
