Massachusetts Man Arrested in Connection to Stolen Bicycles, Nashua Police Say
NASHUA — A Massachusetts man has been arrested in connection to a string of stolen high-end bicycles in the Nashua area, police said.
James Haley, 34, of Hull, Mass., was arrested Friday and charged with receiving stolen property – consolidated, a class B felony.
Members of the Traffic Enforcement Unit began an investigation in Nashua into an increased amount of stolen, high-end bicycles in late October. The thefts took place out of open garages and car ports in several residential areas of the city.
Officers said they identified Haley as a suspect when they believed he was connected to thefts of bicycles in Cohasset, Mass.
On Nov. 7, police said Haley was found to be in possession of three stolen bicycles valued at over $1,000.
A warrant was obtained and Haley was arrested Dec. 1. He was later released on $2,500 cash bail and will be arraigned Dec. 14 at Hillsborough County Superior Court-South.
If convicted, Haley could face up to seven years in state prison, exclusive of fines. The investigation is ongoing.
The Nashua Police Department is attempting to identify the owner of a black and blue Cannondale mountain bicycle and a black and silver Giant mountain bicycle that are believed to be stolen. Anyone with information on the bicycles, or anyone with information on this investigation, is asked to contact Officer David Carrigan at (603) 594-3500.
