Three men arrested in burglary of Ossipee business

July 26, 2012
OSSIPEE — Three men have been arrested and charged with breaking into a Route 16 business in the early morning hours of Monday, July 23.

According to Ossipee Police Sgt. Robert King, Officer Robert Ripley was called to a report of suspicious activity at Expo North, a boat storage and maintenance facility. Ripley arrived at the business to investigate, saw duffel bags on the ground and heard subjects running away into the woods. Additional officers were called in to assist Ripley including Freedom Police Officer Matt Tyler and his K-9 sidekick Boone. They were able to track the suspects to an apartment building at 455 Route 16. After further investigation, police arrested three men in connection with the break in. Michael Nason, 28, of Ossipee, Michael Field, 25, of Rochester, and Dain Blackadar, 22, of Byfield, Mass. were all taken into custody and charged with burglary, a Class B felony.

Field and Blackadar were released on a promise to be on good behavior and show up for future court dates. Nason was held on a cash bail and expected to be released on July 24 on a police recommended personal recognizance bail as well.

King said the nature of the crime determines what type of bail the police will ask for. There are several variables including whether or not those arrested are being cooperative, whether it is anticipated that they will be cooperative in the future, and whether or not they are considered a flight risk or have a history of eluding court proceedings in the past, and most importantly, said King, whether or not those arrested are considered a risk to the safety of themselves or of the community.

All three men arrested in this case, said King, were cooperative with police and all of the items including tools and boat parts that were taken from the building have been recovered.
