Franklin police seize $15,000 worth of drugs during arrest
Police arrested Scott Tripp, 42, of Franklin, on a warrant in the parking lot of the Franklin Fast Food Mart, 80 N. Main St.
A search of Tripp revealed he was in possession of nearly 500 Oxycodone pills, more than a dozen Adderall pills, and more than $600 in cash, police said. Oxycodone and Adderall are classified by the DEA as Schedule II controlled drugs, which require a prescription to possess. The quantity of Oxycodone and Adderall seized from Tripp had an approximate street value of more than $15,000, police said.
Tripp was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled drug and two counts of possession of a controlled drug with the intent to sell, both felony charges.
Tripp refused bail and is being held at Merrimack County Department of Corrections pending arraignment at Franklin district court on Friday, Sept. 19, 2014.
