Motor Vehicle Pursuit & Subsequent Arrest, Interstate 89, Warner to Chelmsford, Massachusetts

On Sunday, June 11th, 2017, at approximately 0215 hours, New Hampshire State Police Troop D and Troop B Troopers attempted to stop a reported stolen vehicle on Interstate 89 in Warner. The vehicle was described as a 2003 grey Nissan sedan. The operator of the vehicle, later identified as Gregory Coffey (Age 33), Providence, RI, refused to stop and led the New Hampshire State Police in pursuit south on Interstate 89, south on Interstate 93, and south on the Everett Turnpike towards Nashua. Spike strips were successfully deployed with the assistance of Nashua Police Department near exit 3. After the vehicle ran over the spike mat, it continued to flee and exited the Everett Turnpike at exit 2. The vehicle continued south onto the Daniel Webster Highway in Nashua.

The vehicle despite driving on a rim continued south on the Daniel Webster Highway into Tyngsboro Massachusetts. The pursuit then continued south onto Tyngsboro Rd where Tyngsboro PD successfully deployed another set of spike strips. The vehicle then ultimately came to a stop just over the Chelmsford Town Line and Coffey was taken into custody without incident.

Coffey is being held on Fugitive From Justice Charges by the Chelmsford Police Department. Coffey is facing multiple charges out of Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Once a hearing is scheduled and held, Coffey will be extradited back to the State of New Hampshire to answer multiple charges from Nashua Police Department and the New Hampshire State Police.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is requested to contact Trooper R. St. Cyr at the NH State Police – Troop D barracks at 603-223-4381.
