On May 14, 2019 at approximately 3:30 pm Troopers from New Hampshire State Police Troop D and Headquarters were given information that a wanted subject was staying in a residence at 60 Lynch Road in the Town of Hill, NH. The subject in question was identified as;

Austin Ayer
Age: 22

Ayer had several warrants for his arrest, offenses included; Possession of Narcotic, Falsifying physical evidence, Simple Assault-Domestic Violence related and Driving after suspension.

Surrounding towns had relayed information to Troopers that Ayer had been evading police custody for several months.

At approximately 6:14 pm Troopers arrived at 60 Lynch Road and spoke with home owners who advised them that they were unsure if Ayer was inside the residence, but stated he was not welcome there. Shortly thereafter a family member confirmed in fact Ayer was inside the residence hiding in an upstairs attic. Troopers maintained a perimeter around the residence and attempted to make contact with Ayer through a loud speaker. Once contact was made with Ayer, he surrendered himself and was taken into custody without further incident.

Ayer was transported to Belknap County Jail to be held until his arraignment.

Anyone with information regarding this is urged to contact Trooper Nicholas Post at 603-223-4381 or via email at
