Three arrested in Manchester for drug sales
Police have been watching a home at 219 Laurel St. for months, according to a release issued by Manchester police. They stopped a vehicle driven by occupants of the address at the Lincoln Street Plaza about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday. Members of the city's Special Enforcement Division were assisted by Manchester S.W.A.T. members in the planned takedown.
Arrested were Geraldy Santiago Martinez, 25, and Shanti Jehlicka, 20, both of 219 Laurel St., who were in the car. Santiago Martinez, the driver, was charged with two counts of possession with intent to distribute, a class A felony, as well as felon in possession of a firearm, a class A felony, and habitual offender. Jehlicka was charged with two counts of possession with intent to distribute and receiving stolen property, a class A felony.
Detectives say that in addition to the drugs, they confiscated a stolen handgun and more than 200 rounds of ammunition. Police said the handgun was traded earlier in the day in exchange for heroin. The gun was traced back to a Manchester burglary in December.
Detectives and S.W.A.T. team members executed a search warrant at the Laurel Street home, which police say they believe is the location of one of the major suppliers of drugs within the city.
At the home, they arrested Michael Santiago, 25, of 31 Porter St., Lawrence, Mass., after police say he attempted to run from the house. They charged him with possession with intent to distribute, a class A felony, possession of a controlled drug, a class B felony, falsifying physical evidence, and resisting arrest.
Police said they saw Santiago throw a package out a second-story window of the home upon their arrival, and they said it contained 93 grams of heroin and 10 oxycodone pills.
All three were arraigned Wednesday morning in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division.
Jehlicka was also arraigned on an additional felony charge of sale of a narcotic, stemming from alleged sale of crack cocaine and heroin at the Laurel Street address last September.Bail for Jehlicka was set at $10,000 cash/surety, with a probable cause hearing scheduled for April 2.
Bail for both Santiago and Santiago Martinez was set at $25,000 cash/surety, with probable cause hearings set for April 2. One of the bail conditions for Santiago Martinez was a signed waiver of extradition. Trial for Santiago on the resisting arrest charge was set for April 22.
