Woman charged in aiding would-be robber
NASHUA - The city woman who hid in her basement over the weekend with a man charged with trying to rob two Main Street banks has been arrested. Deborah Bryson, 29, of 53 Caldwell Road, was charged with criminal liability to the conduct of another for helping Jayson Fulcher, 34, of 16 Blossom Court, try to rob the Sovereign and Citizen banks Friday afternoon, police said. Bryson was arrested Saturday morning at the same time as Fulcher. She is facing the two felony criminal liability charges as well as resisting arrest, according to Nashua police Sgt. Michael Carignan. Police said she aided Fulcher in his attempt to take money from the banks. Bryson drove Fulcher to a parking lot near the banks and then to her apartment on Caldwell Street on Friday afternoon. On Saturday, when police arrived at her door, she hid with him in the basement, according to court documents. In an interview with police, Bryson said Fulcher told her he had picked up some money from a friend before the pair returned to her apartment. It wasn't until police arrived that he said he had done "something bad," she told police, according to court documents. Bryson is free on bail, Carignan said, and will be arraigned in Nashua District Court next week. Fulcher is being held on $100,000 cash or surety bail and is facing two felony robbery charges and a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge, according to court documents. Police said Fulcher went first into the Sovereign Bank wearing a disguise of glasses with a fake nose and mustache and then into Citizens Bank with the same disguise. He left the Sovereign Bank after being confronted by a manager. In the Citizens Bank, he handed a note to a teller demanding money. He left before getting any money, according to court documents. He's scheduled to be in Nashua District Court on Tuesday.
