Vehicle Pursuit Ends with K-9 Apprehension

CONCORD, New Hampshire – On February 5, 2024, at approximately 1:41 a.m., Trooper Davis from the New Hampshire State Police Troop D barracks attempted to stop a motor vehicle for a speeding and a defective equipment violation on Interstate 93 northbound in the town of Bow. 

The operator failed to stop for Trooper Davis’s emergency lights and sirens and continued to flee while increasing its speed to 110 MPH. The operator exited the interstate in the city of Concord and was having severe lane control issues and driving on the wrong side of Loudon Road for a brief period of time. The pursuit ended when the operator abandoned his vehicle at an apartment complex and fled on foot. The operator was apprehended by Trooper Davis’s K-9 partner, Mando after a short foot pursuit and was taken into custody. 

The lone operator was identified as:
Richard Gomez 
Lawrence, MA
Age: 37

GOMEZ will face multiple charges out the Concord District Court to include disobeying a police officer, resisting arrest, aggravated driving while intoxicated, operating after suspension offense, reckless conduct and reckless operation. GOMEZ also had two active NH bench warrants for his arrest. GOMEZ refused bail and is scheduled to appear at the Concord District Court on February 5, 2024, at 11 a.m.
