MANCHESTER - Faulty equipment led to the discovery of 20 bags of heroin during a Manchester traffic stop Thursday night.
The stop was made at about 10:45 p.m. by the N.H. State Police.
Gary Fitzgerald, 37 of Manchester, was pulled over after a trooper noticed defective equipment.
During the stop, officials said Fitzgerald was found to be driving under a suspended license for a DWI conviction.
A bag of heroin was found in his pocket during a search, officials said, and approximately 19 smaller bags of heroin were located in the car and were packaged for resale.
Fitzgerald was arrested and charged with operating after suspension, transporting drugs in a motor vehicle and possession with intent to distribute heroin.
He is scheduled to appear in court on March 14.
