This is a copy of a letter I faxed to the Attorney General's office last week, I have talked to them and I have heard of others who have talked to them. But they say they are too busy to help right now. What can we do about this as a community. Please help look into this. FYI - this is information I found out about by myself, can you imagine what we can do together. I heard from a business person in town that Officer Nate Jette told him that Det. Sgt. Reppucci is on Administrative Leave. What's up with this? Is this true? If so why?
To: Chief Investigator Paul Broder
State of New Hampshire Attorney General
Dear Investigator R. Tracy,
Per our conversation on Monday, July 6, 2009 I forward to you the following information.
I took it upon myself to do some investigating which disclosed the following.
In reference to Officer Nathan Jette I spoke to Paul McCoomb about a bicycle which belonged to the Winchester Police Department Bike Impound. Paul McCoomb told me Officer Jette admitted to having a bike “which he was not authorized to have” and shifted the blame to his Sgt. at the time, saying his Sgt. said he could have the bike. It is my understanding that Officer Jette is still in possession of the bike. It is also my understanding that Officer Jette failed the polygraph portion with the Town of New Ipswich in which he was disqualified due to integrity issues.
It is my understanding that Sgt. Reppucci may have other collaborating information pertaining to Officer Jette’s unethical behavior.
It would probably behoove the Attorney General’s Office to speak with Secretary Maryan Platz who seems to have her nose in everybody’s business.
I spoke with Gene Parks regarding the firearms issue which you and I had discussed on the phone on July 6, 2009.
I went to Granite State Productions in Hinsdale and spoke with the owner and I inquired about Sgt. Christopher Roberts. I went there three times. I asked the owner if he knew if Sgt. Roberts ever threatened his neighbor with a firearm, (I got this information from Steve Formica) and I was told that and many other reasons are why Officer Roberts is no longer employed by the Town of Hinsdale. The owner of Granite State Productions was very adamant that there was criminal threatening with a firearm towards one of Sgt. Roberts neighbors. At this time I haven’t verified which neighbor. It is my understanding that this allegation was not properly investigated.
It is also my understanding the neighbor threatened a lawsuit if Sgt. Roberts was not terminated. The owner of Granite State also confirmed there was litigation between Sgt. Roberts and the Town of Hinsdale which was settled behind closed doors and Sgt. Roberts received and undisclosed monetary settlement. It may behoove the Attorney General to research Sgt. Roberts Form B with Police Standards and Training. I wonder if this information was disclosed in Sgt. Roberts background with the Winchester Police Department. Would this not be a potential litigation issue if the Town of Winchester knowingly hired Sgt. Roberts with this information in his background?
Also, I went to the Town of Hinsdale on June 4, 2009 to research citizen complaints against Sgt. Roberts. I found approximately 30 complaint letters pertaining to Sgt. Roberts unprofessional behavior of which several of the complaints contained profanity towards several citizens. I have personal knowledge of Sgt. Roberts using profanity with my brother. Approximately three weeks later I returned to the Town Hall to make copies of these complaints and found only five. I came back a couple of days later to make copies and there were none. They have all disappeared. I find this highly unusual.
It is also my understanding that Sgt. Roberts insulted the manager at Kulick’s Supermarket in Winchester with his unprofessional behavior. When a complaint was filed, it was just swept under the carpet. Interestingly, this occurred right before Sgt. Roberts became Lieutenant. How is this possible?
I stopped at the Texaco station at 63 and Main Street and asked a general question and they directed me to Shippe’s Auto Repair in Hinsdale. Someone at Shippe’s Auto Repair mentioned that Sgt. Roberts may be involved with an incident involving some rims that were stolen out of a pick up truck sometime last fall and the rims may be on his truck. Shippe’s directed me to Vinnie’s Towing Service.
I am trying to get additional information and I will be sending information as I get it.
I have serious concerns about Officer Jette and Sgt. Roberts credibility especially the criminal threatening of Sgt. Roberts with regards to his neighbor. I have these concerns because I frequently visit my family in this community and I would like these concerns to be thoroughly investigated.
I ask that the Attorney General’s Office take these concerns seriously and investigate them thoroughly and I also request that the Office of the Attorney General respond to me in writing the results of these concerns.

We have also received information that a citizen of Fitzwilliam, who works in town was followed to her home by an off duty police officer in his own vehicle and verbally harassed in her own driveway. This person filed a complaint with Winchester's Chief of Police back in April over this matter .. We are attempting to find out just how this was resolved or if any action was ever taken at all on the complaint.
