Man Arrested on Multiple Charges of Theft

Joseph Deraffaele

On Friday, November 26, 2021, at approximately 11:28 AM, the Lebanon Police Department received a call about a man dressed in camo with a red bandana had stolen a woman’s car keys at a Chili’s restaurant in West Lebanon. Witnesses stated the man ran outside, threw the car keys on the ground of the parking lot, and then ran into a TJ Maxx store.

Officers located and arrested the male suspect identified as Joseph Deraffaele, age 40, of Enfield, CT. The investigation revealed he was in possession of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was stolen out of Connecticut. Deraffaele was also found to be in possession of other stolen items, including his brother’s driver’s license.

After Deraffaele arrived at the Police Department, he requested an ambulance, and Lebanon Fire Department transported Deraffaele to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where he was later released on Personal Recognizance bail. During the time Deraffaele was seeking treatment, further investigation led to a warrant being sought for additional charges related to a domestic incident. Upon his release from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Deraffaele was taken into custody on the warrant and transported to Grafton County House of Corrections, pending an arraignment on November 29, 2021.

Deraffaele was charged with Receiving Stolen Property, a Class A Felony; Theft by Unauthorized Taking, a Class B Felony; Identity Fraud, a Class A Felony; Stalking, a Class A Misdemeanor, and Disorderly Conduct, a Violation.
