Two face drug charges after stop on highway


DERRY - Two Allenstown men were arrested Thursday on drug charges after the driver of their car was pulled over for allegedly tailgating another car.

State police said Jordan Agoubi, 23, was pulled over while heading south on Interstate 93 in Derry after allegedly following another car too closely.

Police said "further investigation determined that there was a small quantity of suspected marijuana" and cash in the car, but did not elaborate what their further investigation entailed.

Agoubi, who was also charged with following too closely, was charged with transporting a controlled drug while his passenger, Joseph Ricci, 18, was charged with possession of a controlled drug.

Both are scheduled to appear April 12 in Derry District Court.
