Arrest Made in 2 house burglaries


On October 5, 2011 at approximately 6:35 PM, Amherst Police officers arrested Aiidan Gibbons. The arrest occurred on Cottage Street and made pursuant to an arrest warrant issued from the Eastern Hampshire District Court.
The warrant was issued after Gibbons was identified as the suspect in two burglaries that occurred in Amherst on September 17, 2011. Several other residential burglaries were reported to the Amherst Police at that time and remain under investigation. A sample of items taken during these crimes is electronics and jewelry.
Additional charges may be sought against Gibbons as the investigation continues.
