Pursuit & Subsequent Arrest, I- 93, Concord to F.E. Everett Turnpike in Nashua

At approximately 2330 hours on February 19th, 2017, a hazardous operator traveling southbound on Interstate 93 in Concord was phoned in to New Hampshire State Police Dispatch. A Trooper in the immediate area attempted to stop the vehicle, identified as a 2007 Toyota Tundra Pickup Truck bearing a New Hampshire Registration plate, to no avail. The driver of the vehicle refused to stop and traveled at speeds varying between 50 and 100 mph as he traveled southbound on Interstate 93, Interstate 293 and eventually onto the F. E. Everett Turnpike.

As this incident was unfolding, information was made available from authorities in Northern New Hampshire that the operator of the vehicle may have been involved in other unrelated crimes prior to traveling south. As New Hampshire Troopers and Communications Personnel attempted to clarify this information the suspect vehicle continued to travel southbound into Nashua.

In the immediate area of Exit 5, the Nashua Police Department successfully deployed spike strips on the suspect vehicle. The vehicle came to rest on the Exit 3 southbound off-ramp where Officers from the Nashua Police Department and NH Troopers were able to contain the vehicle and its operator. After a short period of time, the suspect was taken into custody and is currently being treated at a local area hospital. The operator of the vehicle was identified as Nicholas Santy, Age 27, from Littleton, New Hampshire. Santy is charged with 2 counts of Felony – Reckless Conduct, 2 counts of Disobeying a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest. Santy is being held on bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday morning in the Nashua District Court.

The Exit 3 ramp was closed for approximately 2 hours during this incident. New Hampshire Troopers were assisted by members of the Nashua Police Department.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is requested to contact Trooper G. Rogan and 603-223-4381. There is no further information to release at this time.
