The indictments were issued Sept. 19.
∎ Two Franklin men have been charged with receiving more than $1,500 worth of stolen goods from Grappone Honda in Bow. Michael Deveno, 44, and Jacob Deveno, 37, both of Chestnut Street, are accused of obtaining five laptop computers, Honda fuel filters and a diagnostic tool May 8. They also face violations for allegedly driving with suspended licenses on Route 3A, on which the auto dealership is located.
∎ A Pembroke man has been indicted on four felony counts of selling a narcotic drug in July in Henniker. Jeffrey Amyot, 46, of Keystone Lane, distributed hundreds of dollars worth of oxycodone at various locations in the town between July 16 and 23, according to indictments.
∎ A Boscawen man has been charged with stealing a Remington rifle from a residence in Bow and later inducing a woman to corroborate his alibi for the evening of the alleged burglary. Jonathan Folsom, 22, who is currently incarcerated in the county jail, faces three felony counts for the incidents – one for theft, one for burglary and one for tampering with a witness. According to an indictment, he told a woman something such as, “all you have to say is I went to visit you and you knew nothing about me taking it.”

Michael Colcord, 34, who is currently incarcerated in the county jail, also faces charges in the June 19 incident in Franklin that he drove with a suspended license, that he failed to report an accident he was involved in during which he sustained multiple abrasions to his leg and that he resisted arrest by fleeing after an officer ordered him to stop.
