submitted by Hudson Police Department On August 26 at 1:47 a.m.,
Pelham Police Department received a report of a possible burglary in progress at Route 38 Auto Sales located on Bridge Street. An employee working overnight reported that two men were forcing open a rear door to the business not knowing he was there. As Officer Matthew Kulesz pulled into the parking lot, he observed two men at the rear door of the building. Upon the officers’ arrival, both men
began to run towards the woods behind the business and were ordered to stop by Officer Kulesz. Neither of the men stopped, at which time Officer Kulesz chased them on foot and was able to apprehend one suspect as the second suspect fled into the woods. As Pelham police established a perimeter, Officer Dale Robeck and his K-9 partner Bolo were called to the scene

to assist in searching for the second suspect. Officer Robeck and Bolo conducted a track and located the second suspect hiding in the woods behind the business. The second suspect was taken into custody without incident. The suspects were identified as Daniel Currier, 34, and James Klimavich, 39, both of Manchester.
Both suspects are charged
with Attempted Burglary, a felony, and Resisting Arrest, a misdemeanor. Both individuals were held on cash bail and were scheduled for arraignment before Salem District Court. The vehicle, which these individuals were believed to be
operating, has been seized and is being held at the police station awaiting a search warrant authorizing officers to search the vehicle. It is believed that this vehicle may contain stolen property, such as copper piping and catalytic converters.
Police Arrest Pelham Man for
Suspicious and Concerning Behavior submitted by Pelham Police Department On Saturday, August 28, at approximately 12 p.m., officers responded to the area of the Congregational Church on Main Street for a suspicious male subject using binoculars watching young females. Upon arriving on scene, officers identified a male subject as Richard Mello, 58, of
Pelham, seated in his vehicle near a tree in an otherwise empty parking lot. Officers quickly realized that Mello had positioned himself with a direct line of sight to two young females who were part of a fundraising car wash in the center of town. Mello admitted to the officers that he had been watching the females through his binoculars. Officers observed a set of binoculars on the floor of the vehicle, which were eventually seized as evidence. The car wash event had been taking place for a few hours, as was the Animal Rescue Network of New England (ARNNE) pet adoption day. There was a significant amount of people of all ages in the area participating in both events. The two females who Mello had been watching were identified and found to be 13 and 15 years of age. Under the circumstances, Mello was placed under arrest for loitering and causing public alarm with his suspicious behavior. He was charged with loitering and released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail and given a court date of September 27. As a condition of his release, Mello was ordered to not have contact with anyone under the age of 18, excluding family members.
Driving Without a License Arrest Leads to Seizure of $24,500
submitted by Pelham Police Department On August 26 at approximately 5:27 a.m., Pelham police stopped a motor vehicle on Bridge Street when they recognized the driver and confirmed that the driver of the vehicle did not have a license to drive. Upon stopping the vehicle, the operator
of the vehicle was identified as Joseph Shelzi, 22, of Pelham. Officers confirmed that he did not have a driver’s license in the State of New Hampshire, at which point he was arrested for Driving Without a License.
Prior to having the vehicle towed from the stop, the officers conducted an inventory search of the vehicle and discovered $24,520 in United States currency in the vehicle. The money was taken from the vehicle for safekeeping and transported to the police station. Once at the police station, officers
were unable to determine ownership of the money, and believed that the money may be being used for illegal activity. The officers then had a narcotics dog check the
money for the presence of drugs. Officer Dale Robeck and K-9 partner Bolo then responded to the police station to conduct the search. After conducting the search, it was determined that Bolo had alerted to the presence of drugs on the package of money. A second drug dog was requested from the Salem Police Department in order to confirm the first alert. Officer Shane Childs and his K-9 partner Czar responded to the Pelham Police Station and conducted a search. After conducting the search, it was determined that Czar had also alerted on the same package money.
At this time, this matter remains under investigation and the police department is seeking forfeiture assistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration.
