CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office has arrested a former Claremont police officer on several charges alleging that he provided false information related to a search.

Thirty-year-old Ian Kibbe, of Springfield, Vermont, was arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit perjury; attempted perjury; two counts of unsworn falsification; and two counts of obstructing government administration.

Attorney General Gordon MacDonald started an investigation in March into Kibbe’s conduct. That was based on information from Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase, who alleged that Kibbe and another police officer had falsified documentation related to a search that happened in late February.

Kibbe was released on $5,000 bail and awaits arraignment. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer, and a number couldn’t be found for him.
