    GOFFSTOWN — Two men broke into a Channel Lane home Friday night but “fled immediately” when “confronted” by the homeowner, police said.

    Sgt. Pat Sullivan said no further information was being released yesterday because detectives are still gathering evidence in the case. He would not comment when asked if the homeowner confronted them with a gun and would not name the homeowner.

    Neighbors, however, told the Sunday News that police were at the home of Michael Boisvert of 15 Channel Lane and went door-to-door asking people if they saw anything.

    In a news release, police said the men “fled immediately upon being confronted by the homeowner.”

    No one answered a knock at Boisvert’s home yesterday morning. There is no telephone listing for him.

    A surveillance camera is mounted above and to the right of the main entrance of his beige sided home situated along the Piscataquog River.

    A “No Trespassing” sign is posted on a white picket fence in front of the residence while a decal, with a drawing of a hand holding a revolver pointed outward at a caller, warns:

    If you are found here
    You will be found here

    Selectman and state representative Bruce Hunter has lived on Channel Lane for more than 20 years.

    He said he was watching the ballgame Friday night when an officer knocked on his door. He said police canvassed the entire area.

    Hunter said he did not know what happened.

    Neighbor Mary Lou Parker of 22 Channel Lane said she was working when police were at Boisvert’s home Friday night. Her son, she said, told her about it.

    She said Boisvert is a body builder who has lived at the residence for about eight years.

    Parker has lived on the normally quiet street for about two years. She said last year her next-door neighbor was charged with selling drugs. That home is vacant now, she said.

    Gary Bilodeau, 43, had lived there. He was charged with possessing a controlled drug with the intent to sell it.

    Senior Assistant Attorney General Susan Morrell identified him this year as one of more than a dozen people involved in an alleged drug ring headed by Christopher Bouchard of Manchester.

    Bouchard, 33, was living the high life at the time of his arrest, residing in a sprawling North End home on Union Street and driving a $100,000 Mercedes.

    The men involved in the Channel Lane home invasion were described as: a black man in his mid-20s to early 30s, about 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds, wearing a black sweatshirt; a white man, in his mid-20s to early 30s, about 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, weighing 170 pounds. He was wearing a white sweatshirt.

    The men fled in a small white car.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Goffstown police at 497-4858.

    In another incident described as a home invasion Thursday, a Fremont man was shot to death at 80 Pine St. in Rochester. The Attorney General’s Office has not commented on reports that the man was shot after he broke into the home.

    An autopsy revealed that Bryan Gaedtke, 21, died from a single gunshot to the chest.

    The residence is the home of Geoff and Jocelynn Hamann and their two children.

    The death was ruled a homicide, but Assistant Attorney General Peter Odom said that does not necessarily mean criminal charges will be brought; rather, the term means one human killed another human.


    If someone has a sign like that posted in plain view for all to see, it's probably not the best idea to try a home invasion there....

    What an odd story/reporting style. The police won't release any information because the investigation is ongoing yet the reporter quickly outs the homeowner. The mention of the unlisted #, surveillance camera, & long description of the goofy sign (one that is funny to read but dumb to post out in public) seemingly is only to lead you to the conclusion that he is paranoid (with the comment later that he is a body builder - 'roid rage?). Then it went off into a strange offshoot about a different neighbor's drug activites before coming back to a description of the suspects.

    I really should encourage my kids to become journalists when they get older. Apparently you only need to be somewhat coherent to rise above the vast majority of them :scrutiny: .

    No ... you need only be taller. It isn't difficult to rise above rock-bottom.

    The local newspaper in the nearby "city" to where I live employs a lot of "reporters" who have obviously progressed through the local public education system. I have given up writing to the editor to point out fundamental grammatical errors in articles, because if I were to do it nearly as often as deserved, I would wear out my printer and keyboard in short order. Besides, the editors don't read the stuff -- they just chop it to fit between/among the advertising ... which accomplishes nothing other than making already incomprehensible articles more so.

    That or the complete absence of a style. People who can't write shouldn't try to masquerade as journalists.

    I just pictured Rex from Napoleon Dynamite confronting these guys in his American flag MC Hammer pants and beating them with sauce pans "with the strength of a grizzly, the reflexes of a puma, and the wisdom of a man."

    Amazing. 10 words of information, nicely summarized by a 570 word article. I guess you gotta fill the paper somehow, but this is way more useless blathering than usual.
