Harmony Montgomery’s Father Faces Weapon Theft Charges
Adam Montgomery, whose daughter Harmony has been missing since October 2019, was arrested and charged with eight charges related to a theft of firearms.
The charges allege that between September 29, 2019, and October 3, 2019, Montgomery, 32, stole a rifle and a shotgun from an individual identified as "C.F,"according to Attorney General John M. Formella.
The eight charges consist of:
- Two charges of theft by unauthorized taking for stealing the rifle and the shotgun
- Two charges of receiving stolen property for receiving or retaining the rifle and the shotgun
- Two charges of felon in possession for possessing the rifle and the shotgun after having been convicted of one or more qualifying felonies
- Two charges of armed career criminal for possessing the rifle and the shotgun after having been convicted of three or more qualifying felonies.
Montgomery will be arraigned on Tuesday at Hillsborough County Superior Court – Northern District. Formella said there is no connection between the stolen firearms and the disappearance of Harmony.
He is being held at the Hillsborough County House of Corrections on a charge of second degree assault after knowingly causing bodily injury to Harmony by striking her in the face.
The search for Harmony is ongoing, with a $150,000 reward being offered for information leading to her whereabouts. Manchester Police spokeswoman Heather Hamel told NBC 10 Boston that over 600 leads have been received.
Volunteers Search a Wooded Area
Volunteers organized by the group United to Find Harmony Montgomery searched a wooded area off Second Street in Manchester on Saturday. The group posted video showing people digging and raking the ground. The group said it could not disclose what was found, if anything.
Harmony Montgomery is described as approximately 4 feet and 50 pounds with blonde hair, blue eyes, and glasses. Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call a special number that is manned 24/7: 603-203-6060.
