Belmont man charged with dealing pot after consenting to search of vehicle
A police photo of what they say are drug-related items taken from the car of Ryan J. Davis from a truck he was driving Thursday night.
Ryan J. Davis was arrested after a town police officer initiated a safety check of his car at the Route 106 Park and Ride lot, police said.
"While speaking to Davis suspected Davis was using and possibly in possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia (in Davis' car)," Lt. Rich Mann said in a press release.
A written voluntary consent to search of a Ford F-150 that Davis "was in control of in the parking lot" led to the discovery of "a quantity of marijuana," Mann said.
Officers located a small metal safe, a ledger, several glass mason jars containing loose marijuana, plastic bags consistent with packaging, metal grinders, glass smoking pipes, and a quantity of cash.
The items were seized and Davis was charged with possession of drugs with intent to distribute, a Class B Felony. Davis was booked and released on personal recognizance bail with a May 1 arraignment date in the Laconia Circuit Court.
Mann said the drug arrest is one of many the department has made recently.
"The Police Department remains committed in our efforts to take a stance against the surge of drug activity. Although this latest arrest is unrelated to recent drug incidents in our community it is very concerning to us that drug use and possession is a recurring problem," Mann said.
"Officers continue to pursue drug investigations by seeking out those who pose a risk to the health, well-being and safety of our residents," he said.
Mann urged anyone with information about suspected drug activity to contact their local police department. Belmont police can be reached at 267-8350, or via the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717.
