Claremont Man Pleads Guilty To Stealing, Tying Woman Up
CLAREMONT-Jeffrey Buzzell, 42, pleaded guilty to 5 felony charges instead of going to a trial in the Sullivan County Superior Court last week. Buzzell is accused of breaking into Arthur and Christie Beebe’s home in Charlestown, New Hampshire in May of 2015.
Buzzell stole precious metals and jewelry from the homeowners safe and then tied up Christie Beebe in her cold basement for hours.
Buzzell was ordered to pay over sixteen hundred dollars restitution to the victim to cover her medical expenses and over one hundred and eighty five thousand dollars, believing to be the spot market value of the stolen items.
Buzzell was sentenced to one year in the Sullivan County House of Correction in Unity and concurrent terms of 10 to 20 years in state prison. Christie Beebe arrived home around 10:30 p.m. on the night of May 3, 2015 and heard her dog barking, when she walked in the house two men grabbed her and asked where their safe was.
Buzzell’s accomplice, Jamie Stevens 31 of Newport is currently serving 3 years and 6 months to 7 years in prison on charges of burglary and second-degree assault. Police later recovered a lot of the stolen property under a rock on Chandler Mills Road where Buzzell and his wife walk their dogs.
