Four New Hampshire residents facing drug charges

In many cases, a drug arrest can be a sign that a person is struggling with substance abuse and needs help. The person needs professional therapy to be rid of an addiction that has taken over their life.

That might be the case in Nashua, where five people were recently arrested at a rooming house and charged with drug offenses, including the possession and sale of heroin.

They were arrested after a weeks-long investigation by local detectives of the rooming house where four of those arrested live. The fifth person lives in Massachusetts.

Investigators relied on informants, tips and surveillance to compile evidence of alleged drug activity at the Temple Street rooming house.

Among those being watched by police was the apartment house's 35-year-old building manager. He was arrested and charged with unlawful sale of a narcotic drug, heroin. He was being held on $75,000 bail on the felony charge.

A man living in the building, also 35 years old, faces two charges of selling heroin and one charge of heroin possession. Those charges are all felonies. He also faces a misdemeanor charge of the illegal possession of the prescription drugs Famotidine and another misdemeanor for possession of Viagra without a prescription.

A 29-year-old woman faces four felony counts of selling heroin, plus a felony count of possessing the narcotic. She also faces felony charges for possession of Suboxone (considered a narcotic), and Alprazolam (controlled drug). She also faces charges for possession of Famotidine and Viagra.

A 25-year-old woman who lives at the rooming house faces a single felony count of unlawful sale of heroin.

The fifth person arrested is a 31-year-old woman, who lives in Haverhill, Massachusetts. She's accused of possession of heroin (in excess of five grams) with the intent to distribute, as well as possession of marijuana.

The charges are serious ones that should be addressed by an attorney with experience in New Hampshire drug cases in which defendants need help, not prison time.
