Police K-9 finds teen hiding in a bedroom in Brentwood after hit-and-run accident
BRENTWOOD – Police say they tracked down a Massachusetts teen involved in a hit-and-run accident after he broke into a North Road home and hid in an upstairs bedroom.
According to the Union Leader, Isaac Shea, 18, of Haverhill was driving on Route 125 on Friday afternoon when he rear-ended a truck. Police say he turned around and headed in the opposite direction - and hit a second pickup. Police say he then took off on foot.
The search for Shea began just before 3 p.m. when the crash was reported just south of the North Road intersection.
According to police, the car Shea was driving belonged to his brother.
A state police K-9 was brought in to assist in the search, which focused on the area of North Road and Commercial Drive.
Shea allegedly entered the North Road home through the basement and made his way upstairs, where he changed into some clothes belonging to the homeowner, who wasn't home at the time. Police believe Shea was hoping to disguise himself.
He was located in the upstairs bedroom around 4 p.m., and after he resisted arrest, the K-9 was used to take him into custody.
Shea was charged with two counts of resisting arrest and one count each of conduct after an accident, disobeying a police officer, burglary and theft.
Police say Shea remains in the Rockingham County jail and will be arraigned Monday in the Brentwood Circuit Court.
