On January 31, 2016 at approximately 07:00 a.m., TFC Shirley and another Trooper were parked in a crossover on Interstate 93, Ashland, NH when a vehicle later identified as a 2016 Subaru Forrester, Massachusetts Registration, drove past them traveling northbound at a very high rate of speed, estimated to be over 100mph in a 70mph zone. So fast that the wind caused both cruiser to shake back and forth. TFC Shirley pulled out in an attempt stop the vehicle. Upon closing on the vehicle northbound TFC Shirley clocked the vehicle at speeds up to 116mph in a 70mph zone, ultimately conducting a traffic stop on Interstate 93 northbound just south of Plymouth.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Andrew Than, age 19, Middleton, MA, and arrested for reckless operation. THAM was transported to the New Hampton Police Department where he was released to appear in the Plymouth District Court at 0800 hours on 03/24/2016.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact TFC Shirley at 603-271-1162. See attached photographs of the suspect.
