Windham man faces drug charges following woman's death
WINDHAM - A local man is facing charges after an untimely death investigation at his home uncovered evidence of drugs on the premises.
Joseph Ida, 23, of 8 Bear Hill Road was arrested Dec. 29 and charged with one count of possession of a controlled drug and one count of manufacture of a controlled drug. Each of the charges is a class B felony.
Police executed a search warrant during a week-long investigation of Ida's home and discovered materials and a substantial amount of hardware used to manufacture dimethyltryptamine, a hallucinogenic drug also known as DMT, according to Capt. Michael Caron of the Windham Police Department. Some heroin also was discovered during the search, Caron said.
The investigation is ongoing to determine if additional charges are appropriate.
Police were called to the home, owned by Ida's parents, on Dec. 21 for a medical emergency. They discovered the body of Elizabeth Morin, 20, who was visiting Ida.
Ida has two previous arrests. He posted $25,000 cash bail and is scheduled for arraignment Feb. 6 at the 10th Circuit Court, District Division Salem.
