The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office has announced it is opening a criminal investigation into the conduct of two Claremont police officers.

Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said in a Wednesday evening news release that the probe stems from information provided earlier this month by Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase regarding officers Ian Kibbe and Mark Burch.

Neither officer currently is employed by the police department, Chase said in an email.
