    Prowling suspect arrested - By JOSEPH G. COTE, Nashua Telegraph, NH
    Police arrested a self-proclaimed “labor organizer” found dressed in black clothes and latex gloves behind a business complex early Wednesday morning.

    Curtis Stubbs, 50, of Amherst, Mass., was charged with loitering and prowling, according to a Hollis Police Department press release.

    He was found carrying flashlights and trash bags behind 17 Clinton Drive, one of a cluster of businesses near the Massachusetts line, according to the release.

    Stubbs told police he was a labor organizer working for the New England Regional Council of Carpenters 4064, according to Lt. James Sartell, and added that he was in search of “information to obtain union contracts.”
