Incident 3: Officer Ryan Boyton was patrolling the area of Pine and High streets on December 20, 2014 approximately 6 p.m. when he observed a Honda sedan traveling easterly on High Street.

The operator of the vehicle was arrested and identified as: Ryan Call, 28, of Manchester. He was apprehended behind 452 Pine Street. The officer confiscated a digital scale and a white powdery substance which tested positive as heroin.
