DUNBARTON — A Manchester man accused of manufacturing methamphetamine at a boat launch in town was arrested Tuesday night.

Derek Winters, 36, now faces two counts of manufacturing methamphetamine, driving while being a habitual offender, driving without giving proof, operating after suspension (subsequent offense) and operating an unregistered vehicle.

He’s being held at Merrimack County jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail and was arraigned at the Concord District Court on Wednesday. He’ll be back there sometime next month for a probable cause hearing.

Winters was arrested at the Purgatory Pond boat launch Tuesday night. He was identified as a potential suspect after evidence of methamphetamine manufacturing was found in that area, according to police.

Police said they found Winter reportedly manufacturing a pot of methamphetamine at the time of his arrest. They also executed a search warrant on his car and reportedly found a significant amount of evidence linked to the alleged crime.

Dunbarton police were assisted by other departments , including Goffstown police and the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Clandestine Lab Enforcement Team.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges will likely be filed, officials said.
