State police track down two suspects in Concord who fled after traffic stop on I-93
CONCORD - State police had to track down two people after a traffic stop on Interstate 93 when the driver ran away and the passenger slid into the driver's seat and drove off.
Both people were ultimately apprehended following the Saturday morning traffic stop.
Police say after pulling over the car, they discovered Brandon Holler, 34, of Pembroke, the driver, had several warrants out for his arrest. Shortly after learning this, Holler got out of the car and fled on foot towards Stickney Avenue. Troopers followed on foot and the female passenger, Kaileah Tolken, 23, of Concord, took the wheel and left the scene.
State police got help from the Concord police and a police K-9 as they conducted a search of the area. They found Tolken at the bus station off Stickney Road and say she had been communicating with Holler by text message. They persuaded her to message Holler and encourage him to turn himself in, which he did, police said.
Holler was brought to the Merrimack County jail where he was held on warrants for probation violation, receiving stolen property and forgery. He was also charged with disobeying a police officer and resisting arrest. Bail was set at $10,000 personal recognizance. He's scheduled to be arraigned on the new charges on Dec. 11 in Concord District Court.
Tolken was charged with resisting arrest and detention, obstructing governmental administration and hindering apprehension. She was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail. She is also scheduled to be arraigned on Dec. 11 in Concord District Court.
