Police: NH felon on parole faces gun, drug, traffic charges after getting pulled over


BELMONT - Police say that a Laconia man is facing multiple charges after a traffic stop Tuesday night.

Ryan Streitenberger, 35, of Laconia was arrested for using false inspection sticker and misuse of registration plates, and was also found to be in possession of a loaded semi-automatic handgun.

Police also found a concealed double edged knife and a substantial quantity of narcotic drugs on Streitenberger, and realized that he's already a felon who's been on parole from the state prison.

Once at the police station, Streitenberger managed to defeat a door lock in the booking room which led to another charge.

In all, he has been charged with two counts of Class B felony for a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon, a Class B felony for the possession of controlled narcotic drugs, a Class A misdemeanor for the possession of drugs, a Class B felony for of falsifying physical evidence, a Class B felony for escape from custody, and two traffic violations for false inspection and misuse of registration plates.

Later at the Belknap County Jail in Laconia where Streitenberger had been taken to await morning arraignment, police located an amount of narcotic drugs concealed inside his body which he potentially will be facing future charges for.

Streitenberger was scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday and held on $10,000 cash bail.
