PLAISTOW — A Kingston man accused of hiding out after hitting a police cruiser while driving a stolen car will be in court on Thursday.
Police are calling him a career criminal and said that he has been on the run.
Neighbors on Jesse George Road have said that the neighborhood has always been safe, but in light of the events last night, they are now wondering how safe it really is.
"They took a person who we consider to be very dangerous," Police Chief Kathy Jones said. "He obviously showed a reckless disregard for anyone's safety except for his own."
Police arrested William Maurier. They said he was trying to hide in a third-floor crawl space at the home of Anthony Colantoni after hitting the police cruiser.
Colantoni told NH1 News that Maurier is a friend of his son's and he had no idea why police were knocking on his door.
Drugs, a knife and a handgun were found in the bedroom that is believed to be Maurier's during a search by police.
"When they had come out here with all guns, had the house surrounded, I knew there were guns in my house, and I don't allow guns in my house," Colantoni said.
Maurier will be arraigned on Thursday and his bail was set at $75,000 cash.
He faces a number of charges including receiving stolen property and reckless conduct.
He's also wanted out of Hillsborough County on a warrant for being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon.
His criminal history dates back to 1999.
