DERRY, NH —Troopers of the New Hampshire State Police from Troop G went to Auto Alley in Derry on Nov. 9  at 10 a.m. in order to conduct a search of the automobile dealership and inspection station on a warrant alleging illegal inspection sticker activity.

Trooper Nicholas Iannone of the New Hampshire State Police learned during the course of an investigation that Auto Alley had been improperly transferring New Hampshire State Safety Inspection stickers among vehicles that they owned or had sold.  A search of the property revealed that a number of vehicles offered for sale by Auto Alley had fraudulently issued inspection stickers affixed to the windshields.

Additionally, while Troopers were conducting a search of the business, they discovered ingredients used to “cook” methamphetamine.  A second search warrant was obtained and evidence of drug manufacturing was seized.  The New Hampshire Clandestine Laboratory Team was contacted in order to secure the hazardous materials found at the scene.

The New Hampshire State Police was assisted in the investigation by members of the Windham Police Department and The New Hampshire Clandestine Laboratory Team.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Trooper Nicholas Iannone at (603) 223-8778.
