Massachusetts State Troopers from the State Police-Andover Barracks and their partners with the Lawrence Police and Dracut Police departments yesterday pursued and captured NATHAN SABEN, the man wanted for multiple armed carjackings in New Hampshire earlier this week.
SABEN, 35, of Haverhill, was identified as the suspect who committed armed carjackings in Salem, NH, and Wolfeboro, NH, earlier this week. Yesterday morning Troopers Rafael Duran and Eric Rajkowski observed SABEN and accomplice JESSICA TIRONE, 40, on South Union Street in Lawrence. SABEN was driving (and TIRONE a passenger in) the black Subaru Forester that they had carjacked in Wolfeboro.
SABEN sped away from the Troopers onto Essex Street and then onto Route 110 west in Dracut as Troopers and local
police units pursued. The Subaru became disabled on 110 at Little Merrimack Street. SABEN exited
the Subaru and was trying to get into another motorists’ car when Troopers and Officers tackled him and placed him in custody. TIRONE, 40, of Salisbury, was also taken into custody.
Troopers seized a long gun that SABEN was carrying, which is consistent with the description of the firearm used in the carjackings.
After the arrests SABEN and TIRONE were transported under police guard to separate campuses of Lowell General Hospital for evaluation. SABEN was released from the hospital yesterday and was brought to the State Police-Andover Barracks, where we was booked on multiple charges, including armed carjacking, failure to stop for police, firearms offenses, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, being a fugitive from justice, and other motor vehicle crimes.
SABEN was held overnight at the Essex County House of Correction and will be arraigned today in Lowell District Court. TIRONE remains hospitalized.
