MANCHESTER –– A Nashua man suspected of an armed carjacking was arrested on September 11 after leading police on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash outside the Manchester Police Department.

Manchester officers located the involved van around 1:40 p.m., at the corner of Old Granite St. and Elm St.

When the officers activated their lights and siren, the driver, later identified as 53-year-old Barton Tibando, fled the scene.

Tibando reportedly drove at high speed, running red lights and eventually crashing at the intersection of Maple St and Valley St.

The collision caused the van to lose control, hitting four granite barriers in front of the police department and uprooting them.

The van came to rest beside the police department’s visitor parking lot.

Tibando then attempted to escape on foot, but officers intercepted him near the department’s front door. Despite commands to stop, Tibando failed to comply. An officer deployed his taser and Tibando was taken into custody.

The Nashua resident faces numerous charges in Manchester, including reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, receiving stolen property, possession of a controlled drug, conduct after an accident, driving after revocation/suspension, disobeying an officer, resisting arrest, and criminal mischief.

Thankfully, the crash did not result in any injuries and the road has since been reopened.
