Cellphone That May Have Evidence of a Crime Leads to NH Teen's Takedown at Library
LEBANON — A cellphone containing evidence of a crime led to a teen's arrest Tuesday, police said.
Police responded to the Kilton Library at 3:15 p.m. to find a person in regards to an ongoing computer crime investigation.
At the library, officers spoke to Jacob J. Seace, 18, of Lebanon, and said during the conversation they received information that Seace's cellphone had evidence of a crime on it so they tried to take it from him, police said.
Seace tried to flee with the phone but officer grabbed him and brought him to the ground before handcuffing him, police said.
Police charged Seace with obstructing government administration and resisting arrest and detention, both class B misdemeanors.
Seace was released on $500 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the Lebanon district court Jan. 8.
Police are not saying at this time what type of evidence they believe is on the cellphone. Seace could face additional charges.
