2 Manchester residents accused of selling drugs with 2-year-old in car
Written by NH1 News on .
Two from New Hampshire are facing a possibility of 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine after federal authorities say they were arrested for dealing drugs, all while a 2-year-old boy was with them.
Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced that Lindsey Parziale-McDonald, 28, and Larry Delgado, 29, both of Manchester, were arrested after being caught dealing drugs in a car with Parziale-McDonald's son inside.
Authorities say an undercover law enforcement officer purchased a controlled substance from Delgado and Parziale-McDonald on four separate occasions between July 26 and Aug. 7. Each time, the undercover officer entered a vehicle driven by Delgado or McDonald and exchanged money for drugs while inside the car. On two occasions, Parziale-McDonald’s 2-year-old son was also present in the vehicle, police said.
Laboratory analysis confirmed that the drug involved in two of the transactions was fentanyl. Laboratory analysis is pending with respect to the other transactions.
The charge carries a maximum term of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.
The case was investigated by the Manchester Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Georgiana L. Konesky.
