ALFRED, Maine — Maine state police will discuss at a 10 a.m. news conference the capture of a burglary suspect who escaped from a New Hampshire jail and vowed revenge against two people in Alfred.

David Glenn Hobson was captured Tuesday evening near a Market Basket grocery store in Rochester, N.H., near the Maine border.

Authorities say he was found in vehicle after he had just been picked up by a friend.

Police say he was unarmed and arrested without incident.

Authorities say Hobson had escaped from the county jail in Ossipee, N.H., by scaling a razor-wire fence in the recreation yard.
