Two people were arrested in Allenstown on Wednesday after police found them in a field off Ferry Street with a car that was reported stolen.

Police began searching for the car after it was reported that someone inside was shooting a pellet gun at pedestrians on School Street about 3 p.m., Lt. Michael Stark said.

No one was injured, but at least two of the occupants were arrested on warrants stemming from police in Lebanon and Tennessee.

Jacob Guyette, 18, of Lebanon, was arrested on a warrant for criminal mischief. He was also charged by Allenstown police with receiving stolen property for using the vehicle that was reported stolen and possession of a controlled drug, Stark said.

Guyette was arraigned Thursday and ordered held on $1,000 cash bail at the Merrimack County jail.

Casey Goodrich, 22, of Orford, is charged as a fugitive from justice. She will be transported to Tennessee, where she will face charges of criminal conpiracy and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Stark said. 

Goodrich was also arraigned Thursday and ordered held on $50,000 cash bail pending her extradition to Tennessee.

Stark said additional charges will be filed when police can determine who was the shooter of the pellet gun.


“We seized the two pellet guns and we’re sorting all that out,” he said.

The shooter wasn’t targeting anyone in particular, Stark said, and didn’t hit anyone.

Police tracked the car to a field off Ferry Street and found five people there, Stark said. They planned to camp near the Suncook River, he said.
