Police: At least 12 arrested in New Hampshire drug sweep

LEBANON, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire say a drug sweep has led to at least 12 arrests after an investigation into drug activity.

Lebanon police said Wednesday about nine of the suspects live in areas including the town of Hartford, Vermont, the New Hampshire towns of Enfield and Grafton and the city of Lebanon. Most of the suspects are charged with selling heroin. Arrest warrants have been issued for three people.

Police Chief Richard Mello tells The Valley News that the “vast majority” of the arrests were not connected to one another.

He says the investigation began in late spring. Among the techniques officers used were undercover investigators executing drug buys.

Hartford police and other New Hampshire authorities aided Lebanon officers with the drug sweep.
