CONCORD - A six month investigation led to the arrest of nine drug dealers, and the seizure of thousands of dollars in cash, methamphetamine and heroin, police said.
Between Sept. 29 and Oct. 5, police arrested dealers that had been distributing meth in the Concord Area and likely well beyond, said Concord Lt. Timothy O'Malley.
While much of the state has been focused on the heroin and opioid epidemic, Concord has seen a rise in meth use, O'Malley said. Some users are revealing a disturbing trend to police: they're using meth to offset the effects of coming down from a heroin high. Meth is an 'upper', while heroin is considered a 'downer', he said.
The meth seized during the investigation was found inside a rented home on Bow St. There was no lab found in the home, and the drugs were ready for distribution, O'Malley said. It likely made in a large lab operation, but it's unclear whether that lab is located in New Hampshire.
Police are still investigating and are seeking Christopher J. Ruggles, 43 of Bow on 3 counts of selling meth.
