On Friday December 2, 2016, Troopers from the State Police Troop-A were alerted to be on the lookout for a vehicle in reference to a 12-Hour Stop & Arrest from the Exeter Police Department on charges of Criminal Threatening with a Deadly Weapon-Felony, Falsifying Physical Evidence, and Simple Assault-Domestic Violence . The male suspect, who would be identified as Eric Taylor, age 31, from Exeter, NH was reported to have fled the area in a vehicle described as a gray Toyota Camry with a NH registration, and his direction of travel was unknown. Taylor was alleged to have been in possession of a 9mm handgun. A short time later, Trooper Matthew Locke located the vehicle on I-95 northbound in the town of Greenland. A "high risk" motor vehicle stop was conducted by several Troopers and Taylor was taken into custody without incident. Evidence linking Taylor to the crimes in Exeter was located on Taylor's person, and Taylor was also charged with DWI. The Exeter Police and the State Police are continuing the investigation and additional charges are possible. Taylor was bailed on State Police charges and given a court date of December 12th, 2016 at 8:00AM in the 10th Circuit Court – Portsmouth Division. Taylor was held on $1,000 cash bail pending arraignment this morning on the Exeter PD charges of Criminal Threatening with a Deadly Weapon-Felony, Falsifying Physical Evidence, and Simple Assault. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Trooper Matthew Locke, State Police Troop-A at (603) 223-8490, or the Exeter Police Department at (603) 772-1212.
