[ARCHIVED] Two Men Arrested in Nighttime Burglary After Being Released on Bail the Previous Day

On July 8, 2020, at approximately 12:43 AM, the Lebanon Police Department received a report of a burglary in progress at a residence in a West Lebanon neighborhood. It was reported that two males entered a resident’s garage and vehicle, and then left on foot. The resident was able to describe one of the suspects that was seen inside the garage.

A K9 track was conducted from the residence and led to two male subjects hiding in the woods, one of whom matched the description of the suspect in the garage. The investigation determined that the two subjects located were involved in the burglary.

The males were identified as Jordan Smith, age 21, of Laconia, NH, and Aaron Akers, age 22, of Windsor, VT. Smith and Akers were both previously arrested on Monday, July 6, 2020. At that time, Smith had been charged with Theft by Unauthorized Taking, Receiving Stolen Property with two prior convictions, and Identity Fraud, all Felonies, then transported to the Grafton County House of Corrections and was subsequently released with bail conditions during a July 7th arraignment. Akers was released after his arrest on the 6th on Personal Recognizance bail.

Smith and Akers were taken into custody on the burglary. Akers was charged with Burglary, a Class A Felony. Smith was charged with Burglary, a Class A Felony, and Contempt, a Class A Misdemeanor, for violating his recent bail conditions. Smith and Akers were held in preventative detention and were brought to the Grafton County House of Corrections, pending Grafton County Superior Court arraignments on July 9, 2020. The Lebanon Police Department has recommended to the Grafton County Attorney that both subjects be held after arraignment on preventative detention due to their recent involvement in crimes within the City.
