  • Marissa Lynn Logue, 23, of Concord, was arrested at 10:42 a.m. on Oct. 20, on a bench warrant. While patrolling Fisherville Road, an officer saw a Dodge Caravan near Bog Road heading south. The officer alleged that the male driver “quickly turned his head away from my direction and appeared to have covered his face with this hand.” The officer found that odd and ran the plate and it came back that the driver, Bush, had suspended driving privileges on Sept. 21, and a suspended registration on Sept. 6. The Dodge had made its way to the Cumberland Farms and the officer got out and spoke to Bush, who allegedly stated that he never got a notice about the suspension. Bush was arrested and released on $4,000 personal recognizance bail. He’s due in court on Dec. 2. After the arrest, Bush reportedly requested that the passenger in his car watch his children until he was released. The officer went into the store but found out the passenger, Logue, had left.

The California license was valid but the car registration expired in July.

During a check of the driver, Blackford, was found to have a suspended license and registration. Blackford reportedly told the officer that while in the car wash, the brushes appeared as if they were going to slam into the car, so she tried to reverse and had the accident. When told of the suspension, Blackford appeared “confused and shocked,” but later thought it might be connected to speeding tickets she received that her husband was supposed to take care of. She had a court date on Nov. 18.
  • Brandon R. Pestana, 25, of Franklin, was arrested at 1:40 a.m. on Oct. 27, on a resisting arrest or detention charge.

The vehicle pulled into the driveway of Montgomery Street and the passenger allegedly fled the scene, heading toward St. Paul’s Church. The officer exited the vehicle after the man and ordered him to stop but he allegedly didn’t. The officer caught up with the man, Pestana, and took him into custody. While bringing Petsana back to the cruiser, the Mazda had fled the scene. Pestana was reportedly bleeding from the side of the head. Police reported that he had an active felony warrant from the Laconia Police Department. He was released on $3,500 personal recognizance bail and transferred to the speedway in Loudon to Laconia Police. Another officer was called to Fisherville Road to catch up with the driver of the Mazda who, at first, reported to officers that he had walked home from work and had lent his car to Pestana and didn’t know where the car or Pestana were at. Later though, the driver allegedly changed his story and stated that he, Pestana, and a friend went to Tandy’s Top Shelf and after leaving, two got involved in a fight and later, left the scene to go home. After police arrived, Pestana reportedly panicked and ran away from the car. When no other officers came to the scene, he left, dropped off Pestana’s friend near Boutwell’s Bowling, and went home. The officers collected items that were Pestana from the driver and cleared the scene.
