Manchester Officer Ryan Boyton and Officer Jason Irwin conducted a motor vehicle stop on September 24, 2016 in the area of 199 Manchester St. The operator, Steven Leclair, 40, of Manchester, failed to use a turn signal while operating a 2003 GMC pick-up truck.

The officers approached the vehicle, which had three additional passengers, including Jennifer Tousignant, 27, and Oscar LeClair III, 27, both of Manchester.

The third passenger was not charged and released from the scene.

They spoke with the operator and the front seat passenger, Jennifer Tousignant, when they allegedly noticed her trying to inject a syringe filled with a liquid believed to be heroin. LeClair granted permission to search the vehicle while Tousignant was removed from the vehicle and arrested for possession of controlled drug.

The officers also located a small bag containing crack-cocaine (.18 grams) next to Tousignant. She was charged with two counts of possession of controlled drug, falsifying physical evidence because the officers believe she was attempting to inject the heroin in an attempt to conceal it from the officers. She also had an outstanding arrest warrant from Rockingham County for possession of a controlled drug.

The officers located a small bag containing white residue on the floor board in front of Oscar LeClair’s feet. Additionally, Oscar LeClair  was found to be in possession of two loaded syringes once he exited the vehicle. Both syringes contained crack cocaine (.14 grams). The officers also found two prescription pills on Oscar LeClair (Vyvanse). He was charged with two counts possession of a controlled drug.

Steven LeClair was arrested on an active Superior Court warrant for possession of cocaine. All three subjects are set to appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on September 26, 2016.
