Belmont man charged with intent to sell drugs
Ryan J. Davis was arrested after a police officer initiated a safety check of his car at the Route 106 Park and Ride lot, police said.
A written voluntary consent to search the Ford F-150 that Davis "was in control of in the parking lot" led to the discovery of "a quantity of marijuana," Mann said.
The items were seized and Davis was charged with possession of drugs with intent to distribute, a Class B Felony. Davis was booked and released on personal recognizance bail with a May 1 arraignment date in the Laconia Circuit Court.
"The police department remains committed in our efforts to take a stance against the surge of drug activity. Although this latest arrest is unrelated to recent drug incidents in our community, it is very concerning to us that drug use and possession is a recurring problem," Mann said.
Mann urged anyone with information about suspected drug activity to contact the police department at 267-8350, or via the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717.
