Police: NH Woman Arrested After Police Find 2 Passed Out in Car with Heroin
Written by NH1 News on .
MANCHESTER — A woman was arrested after police found two people passed out in a parked car with heroin Thursday morning.
Manchester police said around 8:55 a.m., an officer saw a 2001 Ford Focus in a parking lot with a man and a woman who appeared to be sleeping in the front seat.
When the officer approached the car, he reportedly saw a hypodermic needle, a spoon and a small bag of what appeared to be heroin in the hand of the woman in the passenger seat, so he knocked on the window to wake them up.
After the individuals were awoken, the woman was removed from the car as an additional officer arrived to speak with the man in the driver's seat. They were identified as Michael Grenier, 30, and Julie Paquet, 29, both of Manchester.
Paquet was taken into custody without incident and charged with possession of controlled drug, and a search of her person revealed that she was in possession of an additional bag of heroin. Police said they place 1.5 grams of heroin, the needle and the spoon into evidence. Grenier was not charged in the incident and released from the scene.
Paquet was scheduled to appear in Hillsborough County Superior Court-North on Friday.
