Tips lead to drug charges for New Hampshire man

Tips and call-ins from neighbors are said to have contributed to the case against one man recently. The New Hampshire man is now facing drug charges after an investigation by local police. Apparently, reports from neighbors and information from his landlord and parole officer also played a role in his arrest. 

Initially, an anonymous tip purportedly reported unusual foot and vehicle traffic at the man's home. Then, detectives say they became aware that the man may be supplying heroin to another individual police believed to be selling the substance. Police then attempted an undercover buy from the man. The police allegedly completed a buy from the man in question, and continued to surveil the man's residence.

Tips continued to come into the local police department about the man, including information that he was on parole. Police spoke with the man's parole officer, and the undercover cop allegedly completed four more heroin purchases from the individual. The man was eventually arrested and charged. When being processed after his arrest, he supposedly admitted to police to selling heroin and being addicted to it. 

The New Hampshire man has now been indicted on felony drug charges. Nevertheless, prosecutors must actually show beyond a reasonable doubt that their evidence proves the man guilty of the charges. It is certainly possible that he could plead to a lesser charge, if a plea bargain is available, or even have some or all of the charges dismissed. Individuals facing similar criminal charges may be wondering if help is available to them once they have been charged with a crime. A criminal defense attorney can offer help to build a strong case against the charges.
