MANCHESTER, NH – Two men were arrested following a traffic stop for alleged possession of crack.
On Sept. 29 at approximately 7:50 p.m. Officers Mark Harrington and Shaun McKennedy conducted a motor vehicle stop in the area of Hayward Street and Batcheldor Avenue. The officers had observed the older model Saab proceed through a posted stop sign at Central and Pine streets before driving south toward Hayward Street.
Officer Harrington noted the passenger making “furtive gestures” while looking back at the police vehicle, so they stopped and identified the driver and passenger, who were both subsequently arrested for possession of a controlled drug.
The operator, Brian Langlois, 43, and passenger, Antwone Francis, 25, both of Manchester, were both in possession of crack-cocaine. Langlois had a small plastic bag containing several small “rocks” of crack cocaine. Francis was in possession of a “crack-pipe” containing residue of crack cocaine.
Langlois was charged with Possession of a Controlled Drug and issued a motor vehicle summons for an inspection sticker violation. Francis was charged with Possession of a Controlled Drug. Both will appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on September 30, 2015.
