On August 24, 2017, at approximately 4:30 p.m., staff at the Division of Motor Vehicles in Concord, alerted members of the New Hampshire State Police – Troop G to the theft of a cell phone belonging to a DMV employee. It was reported that a customer had entered the DMV in Concord and removed the DMV employee's driver license and personal cell phone, which was stored behind the counter of the employee's workstation.

Trooper James O'Leary investigated the complaint. After reviewing surveillance video and speaking with witnesses, the suspect was ultimately identified as Adam Cordano, 35 years old, with a last known address in Northfield, New Hampshire.
