DOVER, N.H. — New Hampshire State Police arrested two men and a juvenile who were in a box truck that was being pursued by police Wednesday in Maine and was possibly connected with the theft of dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles.

State police started pursuing the truck after getting word from police in Berwick, Maine, at about 7 a.m.

Police said that as the vehicle entered the Dover toll plaza, a trooper deployed a tire deflation device that affected two of the truck’s tires. The truck continued a bit longer until the three occupants abandoned the vehicle and fled.

All three were arrested. The two men were from Lawrence, Massachusetts, and were charged with receiving stolen property, resisting arrest and criminal trespass. One also was charged with disobeying a police officer.

The juvenile was taken into custody, police said.

It wasn’t immediately known if all three had lawyers.
