N.H. fugitive nabbed in Portland on 12-year-old burglary-related charge

On Friday evening, when Portland Police Officer Dan Aguilera stopped a vehicle at Mellen and Congress streets, the traffic stop resulted in the apprehension of a Biddeford man sought as a fugitive from justice on a burglary-related case dating back more than a decade.
David Michael Longo, 36, of 53 Pool St., Biddeford, was arrested around 8 p.m. Friday on a warrant, according to Portland police. The original burglary charge involved a nighttime burglary of an occupied residence, Portland police reported.
What made the case unusual, officials said, is that the original burglary occurred on Sept. 14, 2000, over 12 years ago. A Class A felony, the incident happened in Jefferson, N.H., according to the Coos County, N.H. County Attorney's office.
The warrant was issued in August from Coos County Superior Court for failure to appear. The failure to appear was for a court date for a violation of a court order charge, when Longo was charged with violation of a court order for failing to pay restitution related to the burglary charge from Sept. 14, 2000, officials said.
Longo waived extradition so he needs to be picked up from Cumberland County Jail and returned to New Hampshire.
This wasn't Longo's only run-in with the law, according to the Coos County Attorney's office. The list of charges he faced in 2003 in northern New Hampshire included forgery, possession of controlled drugs and theft by deception, the county attorney's office reported. As the result of a Jan. 9, 2004 plea agreement, he received suspended state prison sentences on those charges, the county attorney's office reported.
