Detective Meaghan Buckley and Sgt. Stephen Doherty of the Haverhill police, along with members of the New Hampshire Fugitive Task Force and United States marshals, went to the apartment of Andrew Yates at 5 Maple Ave. early Thursday evening. Weare police had warned that Maguire was armed with a knife.
Maguire appeared at the front door with his hands over his head, according to Buckley’s report. He was arrested without incident, she wrote.
Yates, of apartment 16, told police he had been trying to persuade Maguire to surrender to authorities. Police have received a number of complaints about loud gatherings at the apartment, according to Buckley’s report.
A group of young people, ages 16 to 25, was in Yates’ apartment when officers arrived, she wrote.
Maguire is not a stranger to Groveland police, Gillen said. Last November, he pleaded guilty to a home invasion in Groveland and received a one-year sentence in Middleton jail. Essex County Sheriff Frank Cousins, who supervises the jail, could not be reached for comment yesterday.
The Maguire family owns homes in Groveland and Weare, Gillen said.
