Investigators began working on the case. After reviewing surveillance video and interviewing witnesses and suspects, Kailey Rowley, 31, of Temple Street, a few blocks from the incident, was identified as the “involved party,” Cinelli said. An arrest warrant was issued against her for criminal liability. She was arrested April 25 and held without bail.

“At the time of Rowley's arrest,” Cinelli said, “she had several other outstanding warrants,” including theft, sale of a controlled drug and charges of tampering with physical evidence, all felonies.

Rowley was arraigned April 26 in Nashua District Court.

According to court records and reports on Patch, Rowley is no stranger to law enforcement, with his criminal history going back nearly 15 years.

Rowley was charged with tampering with physical evidence three times in Concord in 2009 and criminal liability for his conduct. Most of the charges were not filed and she lost $831.88 in the lawsuit in January 2012.

She was arrested at least four times in 2011. She was arrested for shoplifting in Amherst in July 2011. She was also arrested on an arrest warrant. In Merrimack, she was charged with criminal trespass for allegedly throwing a rock at a man's vehicle during an incident. She was arrested in December 2011 in Concord for driving violations.

In June 2016, while living in Merrimack, she was arrested on two theft charges related to incidents in Concord.

In September 2017, while living in Franklin, she was charged with prohibited and controlled drug operations: controlled premises where drugs were kept, after police tracked online sex ads and calls for services at a home several months earlier. Investigators claimed there were more than 40 calls regarding drug overdoses, prostitution, assault, wanted persons, noise complaints and several calls from residents in the neighborhood reporting possible drug activity. About a year later, she pleaded guilty to the controlled premises charge and received a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
