Police: 2 men found with crack-cocaine, crystal meth in Manchester
MANCHESTER — Neighbors complaining about possible drug activity on Orange Street led to the arrest of two men who police said were in possession of drugs.
Members of the Special Enforcement Division observed a 2006 Lincoln Zephyr pull up to an apartment at Orange Street while conducting surveillance of the building Tuesday at about 12:20 p.m, according to police.
The driver of the vehicle, who police only identified as Bill, walked into the apartment complex while his passenger, Anthony Richardson, 44 of Manchester, remained in the car police said. Bill returned less than five minutes later and drove west of Orange Street.
A marked patrol unit was in the area and conducted a motor vehicle stop at Merrimack and Union streets after witnessing two motor vehicle infractions (failing to use a turn signal).
The detective pulled over the Lincoln Zephyr, and Richardson exited the car, consenting to a search of his person police said. The detective said that he located a syringe, crack pipe and .07 grams of crystal meth. Richardson was charged with one count possession of a controlled drug.
Detectives also said that they located 1.5 grams of crack-cocaine and a small amount on crystal meth on Bill. He was charged with two counts possession of a controlled drug.
Bill and Richardson was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
