CLAREMONT, N.H. — A New Hampshire man accused of breaking into a disabled man’s home and stealing a dollar has been indicted.

Eric Richmond of Newport was arrested in August when police responding to the break-in at a Claremont apartment house found him in the halls of the building.

The Eagle Times reports he was indicted Friday on charges of burglary and being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.

The 23-year-old Richmond told police he went to the building to look for an open apartment because he needed money for cigarettes. Police said he was carrying a knife.
