LACONIA - Many of the people targeted by a drug sweep last week are back on the streets, out on bail.
According the the Laconia Daily Sun, police reported on the results of the drug sweep to the Laconia police commissioners on Thursday.
Commissioner Armand Maheux said that it "must be discouraging" for the police officers who worked so hard to know that 13 of those 16 picked up that first day by Laconia police were released on personal recognizance bail.
"It's like they almost laugh at you," Maheux said.
"They're still considered innocent," said police Lt. Thomas Swett, saying historically, most arrestees do turn up in court for their arraignment and trial.
Swett told commissioners the department is still looking for eight people with outstanding warrants.
