According to Officer Daniel Gray, Terilli's vigilance led to police seizing nearly seven pounds of marijuana, $18,000 in cash and three firearms. It also led to the arrest of two men in connection with the drug-sales operation.
Brandon Boisvert, 21, and Jon-Marc Levasseur, 21, both of 131 Old Manchester Road in Candia, were each arrested Friday after Terilli responded to a reported burglary at the residence.
"Upon arrival, (Terilli) met with one of the renters of the home," said Gray. "While he was in the home, he picked up on an odor of marijuana, and he saw materials that were indicative of a drug distribution operation."
Terilli applied for and was granted a search warrant, and investigators found the marijuana, two 9 mm semiautomatic handguns, a pistol-grip shotgun, cash and transaction ledgers while scouring the property.
"This is a pretty substantial operation," said Gray.
Gray said the residence was not the base for the grow operation, though he noted a diary found at the scene provided evidence that the men attempted to grow their own product at some point.
Police continue to investigate the operation, he said.
New Hampshire State Police, the Rockingham County Sheriff's Department and police from Raymond and Auburn assisted in the search and seizure.
Gray said neither of the two suspects, whom he termed "active, mid-level dealers," had any prior arrests. Both were held on $10,000 cash bail and arraigned at Candia District Court Monday morning.
