Manchester police recover $2,000 worth of painkillers in drug arrest
MANCHESTER — A city man is facing drug charges after officers stopped his truck and found he had $2,000 worth of Oxycodone pills on him, police said.
Scott Lasser, 28, of 138 Lafayette St., was arrested Monday night and charged with possession of a narcotic drug with intent to distribute.
Street crime detectives had set up surveillance in the area of High and Pine streets about 10 p.m. Monday when they saw two people "sitting idly" in a parked truck, according to a news release.
The Special Enforcement Division had extra patrols in the area of 452-456 Pine St. due to increased reports of drug dealing taking place there.
While watching the two in the truck, police said Detective Aaron Brown saw a woman walk over, get inside and then exit about a minute later. Brown could not verify where the woman came from, but police said her actions and mannerisms were consistent with someone buying or selling drugs.
Brown radioed for a patrol car to monitor the truck, which drove off but was ultimately stopped in a parking lot on Market Street, near Franklin Street, for suspected drug activity as well as a defective brake light.
The driver was identified by police as Lasser. His passenger was Jordan Hannah, 25, no address available.
Both stepped out of the truck to speak with officers, and Lasser was arrested a short time later for possession of 67 oxycodone pills. Police said he did not have a prescription for the painkillers.
Police said each pill typically sells for $1 a milligram or about $30 per pill for a street value of $2,010.
Lasser was arraigned Tuesday in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division, where bail was set at $10,000 cash/surety. He is to return to court on March 24 for a probable cause hearing.
