Derry and Londonderry police have charged a Hooksett man in connection with burglaries in their towns this summer.
Adam Smart, 27, of 57 Gary St., faces single counts of burglary in each town after police learned he had been arrested and was being held at the Valley Street jail in Manchester, Londonderry police Lt. Robert Michaud said.
Londonderry police charged Smart shortly after 10 a.m. on Thursday and Derry police arrested him on a warrant at 1:51 p.m. No details were available on why Smart was being held in Manchester.
Smart was wanted on a warrant in Londonderry for allegedly breaking into a Rockingham Road home on July 20, stealing numerous items, Michaud said. He is to appear in Derry District Court on Oct. 18. He also is charged with breaking into a home at 95 Kilrea Road in Derry shortly after 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 28, Derry police said. A resident who was home provided officers with a description of a vehicle fleeing the area, police said.
Smart was transferred to the Rockingham County jail, where he was held in lieu of $10,000 cash bail on the Londonderry charge and the same amount on the Derry offense, police said.
Burglary is a class A felony, punishable by seven and a half to 15 years in state prison.
