Eighth arrest in Portsmouth drug sweep

PORTSMOUTH — Police have arrested an eighth person in connection with an alleged heroin trafficking ring operating on the Seacoast.

Chelsea Glover, 22, was taken into custody Friday at a hotel near the Portsmouth Rotary, after police received an anonymous tip, according to a press release.

Earlier last week, seven others were arrested and charged with felony drug offenses. The arrests came after an investigation by Portsmouth police and the Attorney General's Drug Task Force.

Police credited cooperation from residents of the Gosling Meadows neighborhood and Portsmouth House Authority staff.

Glover, whose last known address was in Milton, was charged with sale of a controlled drug (heroin). She is being held on cash bail pending video arraignment on Monday in Circuit Court, Portsmouth district.

Police are asking anyone with information concerning drug activity to contact Detective Scott Study at 610-7653. Tips can also be sent anonymously to, or by calling 431-1199.
