LEBANON — Lebanon Police Officers responded to a reported burglary in progress at Twin State Coin & Treasures in West Lebanon on July 8, at approximately 4:36 p.m. A male suspect was seen breaking into the store after smashing the front window.

Witnesses provided a description of the suspect, which led officers to locate and stop a motorcycle on North South Main Street.

The passenger, identified as 52-year-old Joseph Sharleville from Hartford, was found to have two active warrants for his arrest.

One was for failing to appear in the Seabrook District Court on a forgery charge, and the other was issued in Lebanon for theft by unauthorized taking.

Upon his arrest, Sharleville was found to be in possession of over $600 in cash, believed to be taken from the store.

During the booking process, Sharleville became aggressive, kicking the holding cell door, obstructing officers, and threatening their safety.

After a struggle, he was restrained.

Sharleville now faces charges including burglary, theft by unauthorized taking, criminal threatening, and resisting arrest.

He was held at the Grafton County House of Corrections with a scheduled arraignment for July 9.
