Portland man indicted on charges of burglarizing Portsmouth truck stop

By Jim Haddadin, Foster's Daily Democrat

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — A Maine man has been indicted on charges he burglarized Hanscom’s Truck Stop in Portsmouth in July and August.

The defendant, 25-year-old Anthony Carter, was arrested earlier this year after Portsmouth police received an anonymous tip regarding the burglaries.

On July 17, cigarettes, money from an ATM and other property were stolen from the Hanscom’s truck stop on the northbound side of the Route 1 Bypass.

Then on Aug. 20, undisclosed items and money from an ATM were again stolen from that location. Prosecutors say Bypass Gas, the fueling station at the truck stop, was also burglarized that night.

Carter, of Portland, Maine, was arrested in October. He is currently being incarcerated in the Rockingham County House of Corrections.

Carter was indicted this month by a Rockingham County grand jury on three Class A felony burglary charges.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt. Rather, it signifies that a jury found sufficient evidence to warrant a trial.
