MANCHESTER, NH – A noise complaint at LaQuinta Inn and Suites on Jan. 3 led to the arrest of two Manchester residents, both allegedly found to be in possession of drugs, including crack and heroin.

At about 1:15 a.m. Manchester Police Officers Rob Megowen and John Dunleavy responded to the hotel, 21 Front St., for a possible domestic disturbance. Management contacted police after receiving several noise complaints from a second-floor room, so the officers made contact with two people staying in the room.

Stephanie Desimore, 27, of Manchester, spoke with one of the officers while the other officer spoke with her boyfriend, Richard Acker, 31, also of Manchester. One of the officers observed a white powdery substance on a table as soon as he entered the room. The officers determined the white powdery residue (determined to be crack cocaine) belonged to Desimore, so she was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Drug. She was released on $2,000 cash bail and is scheduled to appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on February 3, 2016.

Acker was found to be in possession of 19.7 grams of crack cocaine, 18 grams of heroin and more than $6,000 in cash. He was arrested and charged with 2 Counts Possession of a Controlled Drug with Intent to Distribute. He was scheduled to appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on January 4, 2016.
