Fifth person arrested in Portsmouth heroin bust


Jonathan Barrett (Portsmouth Police)

PORTSMOUTH - A fifth person has been arrested in connection with an alleged heroin distribution ring in the Gosling Meadows neighborhood.

Jonathan Barrett, 23, of Salem, turned himself into Salem police on Friday, on an outstanding police warrant for conspiracy to sell heroin.

Four alleged associates were arrested earlier in the day on related drug charges.

The bust follows an investigation by the Portsmouth Police Department, Rockingham County Sheriff's Department, Kittery Police Department and the Portsmouth Housing Authority.

Because the alleged drug sales occurred on Housing Authority property, the charges may carry enhanced penalties.

The sale of more than a gram of heroin is subject to a penalty of up to 20 years in jail and a $300,000 fine.

Barrett and the other suspects are being held pending arraignment Tuesday in Portsmouth Circuit Court.
