CANDIA, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire State Police using aircraft during a traffic enforcement crackdown say they clocked a motorcyclist travelling 145 mph as he passed other cars on Route 101 in Candia.

Police say the aircraft detail tracked the motorcyclist after he exited the highway and drove through the towns of Candia and Deerfield.

Police say he pulled into a driveway off Route 107 in Deerfield in an effort to hide from police approaching by car.

Police charged 24-year-old Jakob Bastian of Dunbarton with felony reckless conduct and disobeying an officer.

He was released on $2,500 bail and is due to appear in Candia District Court May 14.

It was not immediately known whether Bastian has a lawyer. No phone number could be located for him.
