Arrests Made in Campton Burglary

On March 9, 2019 Campton Police responded to a residential burglary on Birch Circle. Evidence gathered from the scene led Campton Police Officers to identify Michael Grey, 34, unknown address. With the assistance of the Holderness Police, Campton Police arrested Michael Grey for burglary, and Melinda Grey, age 31 for conspiracy to commit burglary. The property stolen was recovered at the time of arrest.

On March 6, 2019 Campton Police had arrested Michael Grey for failure to register as a sexual offender, a class B felony. Campton Police had learned that Grey was not living at his registered address and Grey had been non-compliant for nearly a month while police searched for him.

At the time of the March 6 arrest, Michael Grey was already released on bail for several other charges out of the Circuit and Superior Courts. The State requested he be held without bail due to Mr. Grey being a danger to the community.

Following a bail hearing in the Grafton County Superior Court on 3/7/19 Mr. Grey was released over the State’s objection on personal recognizance bail due in part to recent legislative changes known as bail reform.

Currently, Michael Grey is currently being held without bail at the Grafton County House of Corrections pending arraignment and a bail hearing in the Grafton County Superior Court on 3/11/19. Melinda Grey was released on personal recognizance bail to appear at a later date. At the March 11 arraignment, the State’s prosecutor will again request he be held as a danger to the community and a flight risk.

New Town Ordinance

After a public hearing on February 11, 2019, the Selectmen passed a Town Ordinance titled, “Depositing Snow onto Roadways”. The ordinance’s intent is to promote the safe and orderly passage of the motoring public while on the Town’s roads. This ordinance mirrors NH law pertaining to State highways. The ordinance makes the plowing, snow blowing, shoveling, etc. of snow onto any town road (including the shoulder) illegal. The fine for a violation ranges from $100 for a first offense, to $500 for a subsequent offense within 2 years.

The Selectmen’s concern was that there have been numerous occasions when homeowners or their property managers have plowed snow from respective driveways and left the snow either on the town roads or encroached into the roadway. These actions can cause a concern for a motorist’s safety, as well as cause possible damage to the town’s equipment. Privately owned equipment operators are cautioned not to move materials (sand, salt, etc.) off of treated roadways.

It is the police department’s position to educate the community to the ordinance and follow up with a court summons if necessary. If you have any questions, please contact the police department.
