NH1 News has exclusive video of Merrimack County Sheriff's deputies taking guns and ammunition out of the home of Canterbury Police Chief John Laroche after he was arrested on charges of aggravated sexual assault.
Earlier today police arrested Laroche for allegedly sexually assaulting a girl who was in her teens at the time.
The attorney general's office says the assault happened between 1999 and 2000. The alleged victim came forward last year.
Laroche was a Boscawen Police officer who oversaw the local Explorer Program, which is designed for young men and women who are interested in careers in law enforcement.
The alleged victim was a Police Explorer. The attorney general says Laroche used his position of authority to coerce the girl into engaging in sexual activity.
The Canterbury Town Administrator released the following statement about the incident:
“The town learned of this this afternoon. We were notified by the Attorney General’s office. The Board of Selectman will hold a special meeting at 4pm tomorrow to discuss the matter. The meeting will be non-public because it is concerning a personnel issue."
