MANCHESTER, NH – Two Hooksett men were charged March 6 with heron possession after police observed them involved in what appeared to be a drug deal on Orange Street.
On Friday at approximately 5 p.m., detectives from the Street Crime Unit were paying special attention to a vehicle parked outside an Orange Street address, located between Elm and Chestnut Streets. A man got out of a vehicle and entered an Orange Street address for a brief amount of time. Detectives have made past drug arrests from the address and believed the two men were engaged in the purchase or sale of illegal drugs.
Detectives observed the man get back inside the passenger side of a 2011 Subaru a few minutes after entering the apartment house. The driver immediately pulled into the Pearl Street lot and parked the vehicle. Detectives conducted a stop and made contact with both the driver, Brendan Perry, 49, and his passenger Jason Mylott, 38, both of Hooksett.
Police say Detective Jonathan Duchesne observed what he believed to be heroin in Mylott’s left hand, so Mylott was ordered out of the car. A subsequent search confirmed he was in possession of .6 grams of heroin. As this was taking place, Detective Harrington was still engaged in conversation with Perry. Perry eventually exited the vehicle and was also found to be in possession of approximately .5 grams of heroin.
Both subjects were charged with possession of a narcotic drug and appeared in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on Monday March 9.
