Suspect found with 1,000 bags of drugs, NH cop's tip takes major source of heroin off street


HARTFORD, Conn. - A tip from a Haverhill, N.H., cop led to the arrest of a Connecticut man who had allegedly been selling heroin in the Granite State and across New England.

Juan Facundo, 23, was arrested and charged with multiple drug offenses on Monday.

The N.H. officer had learned the suspect, known as "J" from a witness who provided a phone number, reports the Hartford Courant.

The officer shared the information about the phone number, and police used it to make controlled purchases of heroin. From this, they obtained search and arrest warrants for Facundo.

Officers say Facundo was found with 345 bags of heroin, and more than 600 more in his home. His house also had two ounces of crack cocaine, and a child who was not far from the drugs.

Facundo is scheduled to appear in court on May 18.
