Upon investigation, police determined the Direct TV receiver belonged to a resident of another Salisbury motel and that the truck belonged to a Haverhill used car dealer. Police also determined the other two females had no idea the car or equipment had been stolen and were released.
According to Dellaria, Blackadar had approached the car dealer saying he was interested in purchasing the truck and wanted to bring it to his mechanic to make sure it was in good shape. The dealer agreed to this as it was common for him to allow perspective buyers to bring a vehicle to a mechanic. When Blackadar didn’t bring the truck back after several hours, he called Haverhill police.
After booking, Blackadar’s father came to the police station and informed officers that his son was driving Cole around the area in return for drugs and that she was fully aware the truck had been reported stolen, Dellaria wrote in his report.
In August, Blackadar was one of three people involved in a high-speed car chase that ended with a 15-year-old boy slamming a stolen Honda sedan into a tree stump on Forest Road in Salisbury.
Blackadar and another passenger were charged with receiving stolen property more than $250 and use of a motor vehicle without authority. Blackadar has been arrested several times over the last four years for domestic assault and battery, wanton destruction of property and other charges.
