Manchester police: Concord man in road who refused to give name arrested on drug charges

December 12. 2017 1:25PM

MANCHESTER — A Concord man who was standing in the middle of a West Side road talking on a cell phone Monday afternoon faces drug and other charges after police said he refused to answer questions and gave a fake name to an officer.

Anthony McMann, 23, was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled drug after the officer said he found heroin/fentanyl and a Naloxone pill during a search, as well as being a pedestrian in a roadway and unsworn falsification, police said.

According to a release, Officer Benjamin Foster saw McMann on his phone in the middle of Sullivan Street, near Bartlett Street about 2 p.m. When he tried to speak with him, McMann allegedly refused to answer or provide a name, police said.

After several minutes of refusing to give Foster his name so that Foster could ticket him for being in the road, McMann allegedly gave Foster a fake name and date of birth after drugs were found and he was being arrested, police said. McMann continued to use a false name during booking, with his actual identity discovered via his fingerprints, police said.

McMann, who police said also had an outstanding Merrimack County arrest warrant on a sale of controlled drugs charge, was scheduled to appear in Hillsborough County Superior Court North on Tuesday, police said.
