Lebanon teenager charged with resisting arrest at the Kilton Library
Police were investigating a computer crime
WEST LEBANON - A Lebanon teenager who is the focus of an on-going computer crime investigation was arrested following a scuffle with officers Tuesday afternoon at the Kilton Library, police said this week.
Jacob Seace, 18, was charged with resisting arrest and obstructing government administration before he was eventually released on $500 personal recognizance bail and issued a citation to appear in Lebanon District Court to formally answer the charges in January.
Lebanon Police Chief Richard Mello released a statement saying that officers went to the public library to locate Seace as part of their investigation and once they began speaking with the teen he said "the officers developed information that Seace’s cell phone contained evidence of a crime and attempted to seize it, at which point Seace attempted to flee with the phone. Officers were able to grab ahold of Seace, who resisted, and he was taken to the ground where he continued to resist and was handcuffed."
The chief added that, "Additional charges may be forthcoming."
