Investigation into drug overdose death leads to arrest in Tilton


TILTON - Police have arrested a Northfield man they say was dealing heroin - charges that stem from an investigation into the overdose death of a 21-year-old in April.

Brian A. Watson, 50, of 212 Hodgdon Road, has been charged with illegal sales of a controlled drug and additional charges are expected for illegal possession of controlled drugs, in both cases heroin, police said.

The arrest follows a lengthy criminal investigation that began after the overdose death of Seth Tilton-Fogg, of Tilton, on April 2. Police say evidence, tips and leads eventually led them to Watson as the suspected heroin dealer.

Watson was being held on $5,000 dollars cash bail at Belknap County Jail and is expected to be arraigned on Monday morning May 10 in Franklin District Court at 9 a.m.
