Dover woman facing prescription drug charges

A growing problem substance abuse experts have been warning of over the past several years is that an increasing number of Americans are becoming dependent on prescription drugs. The dependence often begins with a physical ailment such as an injury to the lower back, the neck, an arm or a leg. The pain medications used to help patients with those injuries can often lead to addictions, and the addictions can eventually lead to legal problems.

While we don't know the details of the life of a 41-year-old Dover woman recently arrested for possession of prescription drugs that didn't belong to her, it's certainly possible that she has gone through this type of sequence of events.

She was arrested this past Friday evening as she was walking down a Dover street after local police received a complaint about an intoxicated person.

The responding officer reportedly found the prescription drugs on her, though the report we saw did not state the name of the substance. She was also found to be in possession of marijuana and an open container of alcohol.

She faces drug possession charges, as well a charge regarding the alcohol.

After her arrest, she was taken to Strafford County jail.

A few hours earlier, Milton Police making a traffic stop arrested a Maine man on drug charges.

Police had pulled the man over on White Mountain Highway and said that while they were taking him into custody on a Maine warrant, they found syringes and baggies containing heroin on the man.

He was also taken to the county jail. He faces felony drug-possession charges as well as a citation for driving without a valid license.

In both cases, the defendants should speak with attorneys experienced in successfully defending people facing serious drug charges.
