NH National Guard member convicted of stealing gun from Manchester armory

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A former member of the New Hampshire National Guard will serve two years on probation after being convicted of stealing a gun from the Manchester armory.

Acting U.S. Attorney Donald Feith says 34-year-old Eric Evers of Plaistow joined the National Guard in December 2009.

Feith said Evers took a 9 mm handgun during a quarterly inspection and maintenance of weapons in March 2014 and left with the gun concealed in his pants and put it in his truck. Feith said when Evers returned a search for the gun was underway, so Evers took the gun out of his truck and buried it in a snowbank.

The gun was found by another guardsman three days later.

Evers was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Concord earlier this week.
