Manchester Police arrested a man on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, who allegedly stole merchandise from Macy’s, located in the Mall of New Hampshire, at 1500 South Willow Street, and fled the mall after being detained by Loss Prevention officers.
According to a press release by the Manchester Police Department, officers responded to 1500 South Willow Street at approximately 1:45 p.m. for a report of shoplifting. Police said residents in the area of Maynard Street notified police about a male subject climbing over fences. The man’s description happened to match that of the Macy’s suspect.
Upon arrival, officers converged on the residential area where an officer involved in the search, observed a male subject, later identified as Luis Aviles-Rivera, climbing over a fence in the area of Knowlton Street. Officers set up a perimeter around the residence, as a K9 Officer arrived at the address to assist.
The K9 officer and his K9 entered the back yard of the residence through a gate, and after a brief search, the K9 located the suspect hiding under a deck in the backyard. Initially, the suspect refused to comply with the officer’s commands, but eventually surrendered after the K9 closed in on his position. No injuries were reported.
The suspect was arrested and identified as Luis Aviles-Rivera, 19, of Manchester. He was charged with three misdemeanors: Theft by Unauthorized Taking, Resisting Arrest and Criminal Trespass. The three misdemeanors are each punishable by incarceration in a county house of corrections for up to one year in addition to fines.
