BEDFORD, NH — On June 9, 2016 Troopers from the State Police Mobile Enforcement Team (MET) intercepted a suspicious package being shipped to a Bedford residence.  After a positive K-9 alert a search warrant was obtained and executed on the package. It was found to contain approximately 1 pound of marijuana.  Assisted by Troopers from the State Police Narcotics and Investigations Unit and the Bedford Police the package was delivered to Brett M. Delong, 28, of Bedford.

At approximately 9 p.m. on June 9, 2016 a subsequent search warrant was executed at Delong’s North Amherst Road residence.  The search of the home uncovered a significant marijuana growing operation and evidence of the distribution of controlled drugs.  Approximately 81 marijuana plants, 4 additional pounds of processed marijuana, approximately 4 ounces of MDMA (“Molly”), and money were seized from the residence.  The estimated street value of the drugs seized is approximately $190,000.

Delong was taken into custody without incident and was arraigned before the 9thCircuit District Court in Merrimack on the above charges and he is being held at the Hillsborough County Jail for lack of $25,000 cash bail.
