Rochester police charge two men with possession of heroin with intent to distribute


ROCHESTER - Two men are under arrest after police say they found the pair with heroin and drug paraphernalia, including a scale and baggies.

Police say they were looking for Craig Wiggin, 37, a transient, who'd disappeared from the supervision of the Strafford County Community Corrections program. When they approached him on Colby Street on Wednesday afternoon, they say they saw him throw several baggies containing drugs into a puddle. They also found empty baggies and a digital scale, they said.

Ernest Nason, 34, of 25 Maple Street in Farmington, was with Wiggins and police say the learned he had a warrant out for his arrest for failing to pay child support. When Nason was taken into custody, police say they found him in possession of a large amount of heroin.

Wiggin has been charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute and falsifying physical evidence. Nason also was charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute.

Both men refused bail and were taken to Strafford County jail and were scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday in Dover Superior Court.
