SALISBURY — A man was taken into custody after allegedly impersonating a state police captain and stalking a woman in Salisbury, authorities said Monday.

New Hampshire State Police Troopers from the Troop D barracks responded to a report on Feb. 25 from a woman who had been receiving text messages from someone claiming to be a captain with the state police.

The imposter attempted to extract information from her, warning that she was under surveillance and that her residence was being watched.

The woman, convinced that the suspect was monitoring her, noticed an unidentified individual lurking around her home and peering through her windows, captured on her residential security camera.

Although troopers did not find anyone on the property upon arrival, Trooper Tyler Griffin promptly launched an investigation.

The investigation led to the swift identification and arrest of a male suspect.

He faces charges including false personation, a Class B felony; harassment and stalking, both Class A misdemeanors; and criminal trespass and loitering/prowling, both violations.

To protect the victim’s privacy, authorities are withholding the suspect’s name.

State police urge anyone with information related to the incident to contact Trooper Tyler Griffin at (603) 451-9313.
