Concord man faces $100k bail in fatal OD

November 13. 2017 11:59PM

CONCORD — Bail was set at $100,000 cash Monday for a 21-year-old man charged with dispensing a drug that killed a Concord man last summer.

Spencer Grayson of Concord waived his arraignment on five felony charges for dispensing a drug that caused the death of Ryan Smith of Concord, dispensing a quantity of a controlled drug and three counts of sale of a controlled drug.

Smith, 30, died at Concord Hospital after ingesting a fatal amount of fentanyl and methamphetamine in July behind the Cumberland Farms at 196 N. Main St. in Concord.

“Members of the Concord Police Department have been actively investigating the circumstances of Smith’s death, and Grayson’s subsequent sales of a controlled drug to an undercover Concord police detective,” the office of New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald said in a news release Monday.

A warrant was issued for Grayson’s arrest; on Friday Northfield police responded to an emergency call and encountered Grayson at the scene. A Northfield officer recognized Grayson, confirmed the Concord Police Department warrants were active, and took Grayson into custody.

Police are asking anyone with information pertaining to the investigation to contact Lt. Sean Ford at 603-225-8600 or the Concord Regional Crimeline 226-3100.
