MANCHESTER – The heroin epidemic has created a ripple effect with homelessness, crimes and violence – and it's increasingly gang related.
A normal day in Manchester probably won’t have multiple drug buys.
“People don’t understand it," Detective Aaron Brown said. "Well, how can there be such a problem when we don’t see anything going on.”

Gangs are is increasingly bringing drugs to the Queen City.
As for dealers? Manchester is where the big money is.
“The price of heroin for a drug dealer from New York to Manchester - it might be three times the profit margin,” Manchester Chief Nick Willard said.
Gangs as far away as the Bronx travel to New Hampshire’s largest city to make quick cash.
Michael Irving and Rayshawn Wallace are both from out-of-state and were busted carrying over 30 grams of crack-cocaine and nearly $2,000 in cash.
“Basically these guys fuel a big part of the drug problem in the city because they can come up here - virtually undetected - and sell ungodly amounts of crack-cocaine and heroin,” Brown said.
It may seem the war on drugs is overhelming – but the Manchester Police aren’t backing down.
The Manchester Police Department is working with the NYPD to track down the drugs coming into Manchester and continue to crack down on drug-related crimes.
