MANCHESTER, NH – Two men from out of state – Rayshawn Wallace, 24,  of the Bronx, NY, and Michael Irving, 21, of Springfield, Mass., – were arrested Sept. 28 by Manchester Police for alleged sales of crack cocaine to an undercover police officer.


Members of the Special Enforcement Division conducted a motor vehicle stop at approximately 11 p.m. in the area of 200 Keller St.

Detectives developed information that both individuals inside the vehicle were responsible for selling crack cocaine in the Queen City, having allegedly observed Wallace engage in illegal drug sales earlier in the evening. Police said Wallace allegedly sold a small quantity of crack-cocaine (.9 grams) to a plain clothes officer.

Officer Ryan Brandreth and his drug-sniffing police dog Colt searched the vehicle and assisted in the arrest.
