Man arrested twice in one day faces drug, DUI charges

Police in Concord and Bow said they arrested the same man hours apart on charges of driving under the influence.

Benjamin Benoit, 33, of Boscawen, was arrested Thursday afternoon after police received a report of a person at a Bow gas station falling asleep in the driver’s seat of a car.

Benoit was arrested again Friday morning in Concord after another report was made about a person passed out in a vehicle at a gas station. Concord police said the car Benoit was in was stolen from the owner’s place of employment in Pembroke.

Benoit is facing multiple charges, including driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance and possession of stolen property.

After each arrest, Benoit was released on personal recognizance bail. He is scheduled to appear in Merrimack County Superior Court on the Bow charges on July 5 and on the Concord charges on July 12.
