Manchester Drug bust leaves neighbors shocked
MANCHESTER -- Police say they've broken up a drug ring after a six-week investigation that led to four arrests.
More than $10,000 worth of heroin, cocaine and prescription drugs were seized in Thursday's raid.
The neighborhood surrounding the arrest is outraged.
"Well my son found marijuana in the alley way the other night," said Sara Nagy.
She a mother of five and said drugs in the neighborhood are just a part a life.
"Sometimes I stop at stop signs and lights and I hear people talking about them constantly. The kids hear and my daughter's like did you hear that mom and I'm like yeah," said Nagy.
"That particular part of the city, sure there is crime in that part of the city but I wouldn't say any more so than any other part of the city," said Sgt. Brian O'Keefe of Manchester Police.
Police caught up with one of the men in the neighborhood of Lincoln and Silver Streets. Police said between four suspects they found heroin, cocaine, crack-cocaine and oxycodone tablets.
"Some of the neighbors have been caught with drugs and losing their children and having to move out and that scares me, I have an eight year old," said Jennifer Roux.
She said she's leaving the neighborhood for the safety of her son.
"I mean for the longest time I was always out here with him. He's eight and he can walk to the store by himself but that's usually as far as I let him go because you never know," said Roux.
All four men are due back in court next month. Police continue to investigate the source of the drugs found on the men and the resurfacing of crack-cocaine in this part of the Queen City.
