Police: Manchester heroin dealer caught with meth following car chase

MANCHESTER — A Manchester man with an active warrant for selling heroin was found with meth after being pulled over by police.

An officer attempted to pull over John Brinley, 33, after he committed a motor vehicle violation Wednesday at about 6:15 p.m.

Brinley failed to stop for the police cruiser which had activated it's emergency blue lights and siren, police said.

After a brief pursuit, the vehicle stopped after turning onto Cypress Street.

Brinley had an active parole violations warrant for an original heroin sales charge. Brinley was taken into custody for the arrest warrant and for disobeying a police officer after failing to stop his vehicle.

Officers also noticed a clear plastic baggie in the vehicle that appeared to contain meth. A drug detection K-9 conducted an exterior search of the vehicle and confirmed the presence of an illegal substance.

Brinley was additionally charged with possession of a controlled drug. He appeared in court Thursday.
