Police seize weapons after spotting car driving erratically
SALEM (AP) - New Hampshire police say they seized a semi-automatic sub-machine pistol with a silencer, a 12-gauge shotgun and drugs after spotting a car driving erratically on Route 28 in Salem.
Salem police charged 35-year-old Gordon Potter of Warner with being a felon in possession of firearms, possession of heroin, making a false statement to police and violating parole.
Salem Deputy Chief Shawn Patten says police pulled over a car in which Potter was a passenger Thursday morning after it was seen weaving between lanes. Police say they seized the weapons and drugs from the car and arrested the driver - 22-year-old Aliza Drouin of Laconia - on a charge of transportation of drugs.
Potter is being held on $250,000 bail. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
