Unique hand tattoos help police identify NH burglar
KEENE — A man that broke into the Eagle's Club Sunday was eventually identified, partially because of unique tattoos on his hands, according to police.
Keene police said they responded to the Eagle's Club on Church Street because a motion alarm was triggered. When they arrived, police discovered that the building had been entered and items were stolen.
Surveillance cameras captured a male suspect in a hooded sweatshirt entering the building. Police said the footage also showed the man's unique hand tattoos.
Police released the photos to the public, and the suspect was identified as frequenting the Roxbury Street area.
On Thursday, police located and arrested Ricky Laprade, 26 of Keene, and charged him with felony-level burglary. Police said Laprade was wearing cover up make-up on his hand tattoos at the time of his arrest.
Laprade’s bail was set at $10,000 cash, and he is scheduled to appear in Cheshire Superior Court Friday at 1:30 p.m.
Police said the case remains under investigation, and anyone with information related to the incident is asked to call the Keene Police Department at 603-357-9820.
