Feds seek to seize $17k, weapons from two Candia men charged in drug case
But officers soon became suspicious when they smelled marijuana inside the rented home, prosecutors said.
One of the men, Brandon Boisvert, 21, assured an officer, “We smoke a lot of weed in here,” according to prosecutors.
Boisvert was indicted in Rockingham County Superior Court last month on a charge of possession of a controlled drug with intent to sell. Jon-Marc Levasseur was also arrested on drug charges, police said.
During the search of the apartment, police discovered a storage room located within a closet, court papers say. “In the storage room, officers found a large orange metal container which was locked and secured to a support beam by a large steel cable,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Rabuck said in a court complaint. Police officers found a key for the container on a chain hanging on Boisvert’s bed post, prosecutors said.
Police found more than 8 ounces of marijuana and more than $1,000 in cash, a ledger and a digital scale, prosecutors said.
