3 arraigned on drug charges after motel arrests in Manchester
MANCHESTER — Holly Dionne, 27, of 172 Gold St., was arraigned Tuesday in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division, on two felony drug charges that allege she had heroin in Room 405 at the Super 8 Motel on Brown Avenue March 6.
Dionne could enter no plea to felony charges of possession of a narcotic and possession of a narcotic with intent to sell.
Christopher Chapman, 32, who is homeless, was arraigned on a possession of narcotic charge for allegedly having heroin in the same room. Sarah Lauzon, 23, who gave her address as 57 Schiller St., was arraigned on a charge of possession of a narcotic, for allegedly having heroin on the same day and the same motel, but in Room 401.
Lauzon was out on bail on theft-related charges, scheduled for trial in April. Police prosecutors are seeking to have Lauzon’s bail on those charges revoked and have her held until trial, so a bail revocation hearing was set for Wednesday.
Bail for Dionne was set at $5,000 cash/surety, and bail for Chapman was set at $2,000 cash/surety. Probable cause hearings for all three defendants are set for April 8.
Child at home
Holly Harrington, 31, of 529 Massabesic St., Tuesday asked a Circuit Court-Manchester District Division judge for a break on bail, saying, “I have a 3-year-old daughter at home.”
Harrington was in court for arraignment on a felony charge of possession of a narcotic for allegedly having cocaine on Shasta Street Monday.
Police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier sought $2,000 cash/surety bail for Harrington, but Judge William Lyons cut the amount in half, setting bail at $1,000 cash/surety.
Because no plea can be entered to a felony in circuit court, a probable cause hearing for Harrington was set for April 8.
Charged with resisting
Police said they were trying to arrest Tristan Roukey, 25, who is homeless, on a Goffstown warrant when he ran from them on Pine Street Monday.
As a result, Roukey was in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division Tuesday morning on a charge of resisting arrest. Bail was set at $1,000 cash/surety and trial on the Manchester charge was set for April 24.
Bail on the Goffstown warrant is $500 personal recognizance. Roukey is scheduled to appear in the Goffstown court March 27 in connection with a payment issue on a 2013 conviction for driving under the influence.
Accused in jewelry theft, sale
Ian Clark, 26, of 37 Mountain Base Road, Goffstown, could enter no plea Tuesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a felony charge of receiving stolen property that alleges he had in his possession stolen jewelry valued at several thousand dollars that he sold to a pawn shop Dec. 11.
Misdemeanor charges of theft by deception and receiving stolen property allege that on Dec. 12 he sold more stolen jewelry, valued at $625, to the pawn shop for $60.
Clark is free on $10,000 cash/surety bail, with conditions barring contact with the jewelry owner and barring him from a specific Bedford address. A probable cause hearing on the felony charge was set for April 23, and trial on the misdemeanors was set for May 7.
