PELHAM, N.H. -- Police called in a helicopter and K9 units to arrest a suspect Wednesday afternoon near Marsh Road who was later taken into custody without incident.
Damon Bonnell, 36, of Pelham, was wanted on a warrant for a felony-level receiving stolen property charge. Previously, Bonnell was arrested by Pelham police for allegedly receiving stolen property from a residential burglary in town on Thanksgiving day. In that case, officials said approximately $35,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from a home along with a 9mm handgun. Police eventually tracked the items to a pawn shop in Salem and arrest Bonnell for allegedly receiving the goods.
After Bonnell's initial arrest, it was later learned he was also wanted on other warrants in Massachusetts and had a warrant pending for a parole violation from the New Hampshire Department of Corrections.
Bonnell was out on bail when police learned he was hiding this week, according to a department press release, at a residence on Marsh Road. Police said because of Bonnell's "propensity to run from the police," as well as for public safety, the residence was surrounded at about 1:45 p.m. on Wednesday by local police officers and members of the New Hampshire state police canine and air wing units.
Police placed a call to the residence demanding Bonnell turn himself in. He subsequently surrendered to them. Police then transported him to the Salem Police Department to be processed for his warrant.
Detectives say they are still investigating the whereabouts of the reportedly stolen handgun.
