Nashua Police happen upon wanted NH man in coffee shop, make arrest
NASHUA — Police in the Gate City were able to arrest a man wanted on a warrant who they happened to run across at a coffee shop Wednesday.
Paul Emond, 65, no fixed address, Nashua, was arrested about 2:15 and charged with felonies for failing to comply with required registration following previous convictions.
In April 2017 detectives assigned to monitor sexual offenders who reside in Nashua discovered Emond failed to report to register as required by the terms of the Sexual Offender Registry. Further investigation determined that Emond moved from his previously reported address and failed to inform the Nashua Police Department as required.
Based on the investigation, it was determined that Emond was non-compliant with the terms of the Sex Offender Registration and detectives applied for and were granted a warrant for Emond’s arrest.
Emond was arrested by detectives who happened across him at a downtown coffee shop. The offenses are charged as a Class A Felonies based on Emond’s prior conviction for Duty to Report.
In June of 2012 Emond was convicted of indecent exposure and lewdness in Hillsborough County Superior Court South. The conviction requires Emond to register as a Tier I Sexual Offender biannually. Additionally, in August 2014 Emond was convicted of duty to report, class B felony, in Hillsborough County Superior Court South.
A Class A Felony is punishable by up to fourteen years imprisonment, exclusive of fines for each count. Emond refused bail and is being held pending his arraignment in Nashua District Court Thursday.
