Police say actions in deadly Weare sting were 'correct'
"For the officers of the Weare Police Department - whether they were involved or not - the few weeks that it will take to reach a preliminary finding are very long weeks. Everybody is waiting for a resolution. I think everybody is confident that their actions are correct, but that has to be validated somehow," said Arthur Walker, retired Keene police chief who has been serving as the town's interim police administrator since Chief Gregory Begin resigned, June 1.
The New Hampshire Attorney General's Drug Task Force played no role in the undercover drug operation, which occurred about 10:10 p.m. outside Dunkin' Donuts at Lanctot's Plaza on Route 114, Attorney General Joseph A. Foster said.
Hillsborough County Attorney Patricia LaFrance would not comment Friday, citing the ongoing investigation.
The incident stemmed from an investigation into heroin dealing in Weare. Several Weare police officers, two confidential informants and the suspected drug dealer were at the plaza where the drug deal was supposed to occur, authorities have said.
"That is the essence of the investigation," he said.
State authorities have refused to say whether DeJesus was armed or exchanged gunfire with police.
The department has been without a chief since Begin retired in early June, a year before his three-year elected term expired. His second-in-command, Lt. James Carney, retired July 1.
Townspeople have been largely supportive of the force as seen "by their words and actions and kindnesses offered by the average citizen to the officers," Walker said.
