Portsmouth police arrest man suspected in burglaries, allegedly find heroin


PORTSMOUTH - A Maine man who was stopped in Portsmouth on suspicion of burglary was found in possession of heroin and fentanyl, some of which was carried in his rectum, according to court records.

Seacoast Online reported that Portsmouth officers were asked to assist South Berwick, Maine, police with investigating Zacahary Roy, 25, of York, Maine, who was suspected in several burglaries.

Law enforcement had Roy under surveillance when he made a what appeared to be a drug transaction in Lawrence, Mass. He was then allegedly seen speeding on on I-95 and was stopped on the Spaulding Turnpike.

The police report said they saw signs of drug paraphernalia and police asked Roy if he had drugs on him. Roy then said he had drugs "inside him."

Roy is alleged with two counts of possession of heroin and fentanyl and two counts of possessing those drugs in a motor vehicle.
