Pursuit Ends in Arrest

Troop A

ROCHESTER, N.H. – On Thursday, April 11, 2024, at approximately 8:00 p.m., Troopers assigned to the Troop A Barracks were notified of BOLO (Be-On-The-Lookout) information regarding a 2016 Jeep Cherokee suspected of being operated by a person wanted by the Rochester Police Department in connection with a domestic violence related assault. 

At approximately 8:58 p.m., Rochester Police Officers spotted the Jeep and attempted to initiate a traffic stop, at which time the Jeep failed to stop. Moments later, Trooper Matthew Dushame of the Troop A Barracks, observed the Jeep on Museum Way in the City of Rochester and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. The Jeep increased speed and fled, resulting in the initiation of a pursuit. 

During the pursuit, the Jeep fled along Route 125 and Route 108 in the City of Rochester, eventually entering the City of Somersworth. As the Jeep continued to flee on Route 108, Troopers deployed tire deflation devices, successfully deflating the front tires of the Jeep. The pursuit continued into the City of Dover navigating along several major routes and secondary roadways at slow speeds. 

The Jeep returned to Route 108 and continued to flee through the Cities of Dover and Somersworth before reentering the City of Rochester. The Jeep came to a stop on Route 108 in the vicinity of Tebbetts Road, where the Troopers were able to take the operator into custody without further incident. The driver of the Jeep was identified as Christopher Glover, age 41, of Rochester, New Hampshire. During an on-scene investigation, Troopers noted that Glover exhibited indicators of impairment. 

Glover was arrested by the Troopers and is facing charges of reckless conduct – deadly weapon, aggravated driving under the influence of liquor, driving under the influence of liquor, disobeying an officer, unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle, operating without a valid license, and reckless operation. In addition, the Rochester Police Department charged Glover with several additional crimes in connection with the original event that had occurred prior to the pursuit. 

Glover refused to submit to a requested chemical test and was ordered to be held in preventative detention at the Strafford County House of Corrections. He was arraigned today in the Rochester District Court. 

While Troopers investigated the scene and emergency personnel worked to facilitate the removal of the involved Jeep, the northbound travel lane of Route 108 was closed in the immediate area for approximately 45 minutes. 

Other agencies assisting Troopers during the course of this event included the Rochester Police Department, the Somersworth Police Department, and Doug’s Towing & Automotive Repair. 

This case remains under investigation and anyone who may have additional information is asked to contact Trooper Dushame at
