Prior record induces felony charge for man accused of theft in Nashua


NASHUA – Police arrested a man accused of concealing items from the Ocean State Job Lot on 300 Main St. at about 8:35 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said that on Dec. 28, 2015, 35-year-old James Charland, of Nashua, can be identified on the store’s security footage exiting with merchandise he had not paid for.

According to authorities, the offense would typically be a misdemeanor charge.

However, due to several theft convictions on Charland’s record, police have made the charge a class B felony, which is punishable by up to 7 years imprisonment.

Charland is expected to appear in court Wednesday.
