MANCHESTER, NH – Jacob Howard, 32, of Manchester, was arrested Aug 4. on two warrants charging him with felony conduct after an accident and carrying/selling a dangerous weapon.

At about 2:40 p.m. on Tuesday Officers Peter Boylan and Darren Murphy Howard at a local hospital while he was visiting a patient. He was taken into custody, which included a routine pat-down, at which time officers located two small foil wrappings inside of his cargo pants pocket. The foil contained burnt residue and two small pieces of a hard substance, which later tested positive as heroin.
