HOOKSETT — Three individuals were taken into custody after a high-speed chase that started in Hooksett and ended in a foot pursuit at a Manchester apartment complex on May 18.

Hooksett Police responded to a reported theft at the Kohl’s store at approximately 7:30 p.m., where the suspects had fled the scene in a Kia Forte headed toward Home Depot.

Officer Foley spotted the vehicle exiting the Home Depot parking lot, driven by Lacey Paye, 32, from Groton.

Despite attempts to stop the vehicle on Route 3A, Paye led police on a chase into Manchester, with speeds exceeding 70 mph.

The pursuit was called off for safety reasons, but the vehicle was later found at the Regency Place Apartment Complex, where Paye and two men, identified as Anthony Manning, 35, from Haverhill, NH, and Jacob James, 35, from Strafford, NH, fled on foot.

With assistance from the New Hampshire State Police and the Manchester Police Department, Paye and James were arrested at the scene.

Manning was discovered by local residents hiding in a garage and subsequently apprehended by Manchester police.

Paye faces charges of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, disobeying an officer, speeding, and multiple counts of drug possession.

She was released on a $500 cash bail with a scheduled court appearance on June 27 at the 6th Circuit Hooksett District Court.

James was detained on an unrelated parole warrant from Rockingham County.

Manning was charged with criminal trespass and resisting arrest by the Manchester Police, in addition to other warrants.

The Kia Forte was impounded pending a search warrant.

Further investigation may lead to additional charges against all parties involved.

Authorities urge anyone with information to contact Officer Foley at 603-624-1560 x407.
