Clockwise from top left: Monique Teal, Jon Larochelle, Bradley Tyrell, Roberto Adorno, and Ismailin Lugo.
Police say they believe these arrests resulted in the largest seizure of heroin in Manchester's history.
As a result of the search warrant, police said approximately 100 grams of heroin was seized with an approximate street value of $10,000. In addition, police recovered a large assortment of prescription narcotics, digital scales and packaging materials, as well as $4,424 in cash.
The three arrested at 325 Silver St. were:
Monique Teal, 24 of 325 Silver St., charged with five counts of possession of a controlled drug with the intent to distribute. She was also charged with falsifying physical evidence when police say they discovered her attempting to hide a quantity of heroin while inside the transport vehicle.
Jon Larochelle, 35, of 400 Cohas Ave., charged with five counts of possession of a controlled drug with the intent to distribute.
Bradley Tyrell, 49, of 128 Loudon Road, Concord, charged with a probation violation.
Both Teal and Larochelle were held on $100,000 cash/surety bail.
Police say information was developed that led to the arrests of two other people at the home. They are Roberto Adorno, 37, of 24 Bennington St., Lawrence, Mass., and Ismailin Lugo, 22, 14 Independence Drive, Methuen, Mass.
Police say the two had arrived at the Silver Street location in a vehicle containing an additional 200 grams of heroin, valued at $20,000, along with 29.2 grams of cocaine, valued at $1,100, and $7,409 in cash.
In addition, police said that two children were inside the vehicle with the drugs, with one of the children - a 6-year-old girl - sitting with some of the drugs at her feet. The girl was identified as Lugo's daughter, police said, and another minor, a 16-year-old, was identified as Lugo's cousin who is currently under her care and supervision.
Adorno and Lugo were each charged with two counts of possession of a controlled drug with the intent to distribute and one count of endangering the welfare of a child. Adorno was also charged with resisting arrest due to a brief struggle with police as they arrested him. Both were held on $100,000 cash/surety bail.
