Newmarket man charged with dismantling marijuana grow, drug sales
Michael Hurteau, 49, of Main Street, was arraigned on five drug charges in 10th Circuit Court, Brentwood Division, following his arrest on Tuesday. He is charged with possession of a controlled drug and falsifying physical evidence for allegedly dismantling and throwing away marijuana plants and growing supplies before a search warrant was executed at his apartment, according to the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Department.
Investigators said they were led to Hurteau’s marijuana growing operation after obtaining information from a person identified in court records as Hunt’s girlfriend.
“A trail of what appeared to be potting soil was in the hallway leading to his apartment,” Sheriff Deputy Sgt. Scott Peltier said in a sworn affidavit. “The odor (of marijuana) got stronger as we got to the apartment door.”
Peltier also said that the plants and a grow light had recently been placed in the dumpster. They were dry and sitting on top of other trash that had gotten wet from rain overnight.
Hurteau is being held on $25,000 cash bail. Hunt is being held on $5,000 cash bail. Both men will be required to have a source-of-funds hearing if they seek lower bail. They are due back in court on July 24 for probable cause hearings.
