A Manchester man is accused of crashing a stolen vehicle in Dunbarton and then attempting to flee police.

Sean Mcgarry, 25, faces felony counts of receiving stolen property and possession of heroin. He is also charged with misdemeanor counts of conduct after an accident, false reporting of an accident and driving without giving proof of identification, in addition to violation-level reckless conduct and operating after suspension or revocation. He is being held for lack of $10,000 bail.

Dunbarton police responded to a two-vehicle crash Tuesday about 1:55 p.m. in the area of 44 Concord State Road. A 2017 Honda Accord had rear-ended a 2005 Dodge Caravan after the Honda suddenly stopped, police said. Both vehicles were traveling west.

Police said Mcgarry, the driver of the Honda, fled the crash scene. He was found a short time later among the occupants of the Dodge whom he knew; police said he was attempting to conceal his involvement in the crash.

On scene, police learned the Honda had been reported stolen from Clough State Park in Weare. The theft and the crash remain under investigation.
