Lowell Police just put out a stop and hold for a 2001 black Ford Mustang, Massachusetts license plate 142NE0.
“Vehicle nearly struck a Salem officer. It should have a smashed out window,” dispatch said. “Wanted for assault on a New Hampshire officer.”
Police said a man named John Benoit is believed to be driving the car. It sounds like Benoit is believed to be from Maynard, but his cell phone was just pinged in the area of 11 Lawrence Street here in Lowell.
I have no evidence that Benoit is arrestable or that he is being charged or accused. I’m only publishing his name because it was part of the stop and hold.
If you spot this car call 911. If you know where this guy is, call Salem, N.H. Police at 603.893.1911.
