Concord, NH – Attorney General John M. Formella, Manchester Police Chief Allen D. Aldenberg, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Special Agent in Charge James M. Ferguson, and United States Marshal Enoch F. Willard announce that Kayla Montgomery, age 31, of Manchester, New Hampshire, has been arrested for two charges of receiving stolen property related to a theft of firearms that occurred in September/October 2019 in Manchester.

The charges allege that between September 29, 2019, and October 22, 2019, in Manchester, Kayla Montgomery received or retained a rifle and a shotgun belonging to C.F., knowing that the firearms had been stolen or believing that they had probably been stolen.
