SALEM - A plethora of weapons and drugs were recovered after police stopped a vehicle around 10 a.m. Thursday in Salem.
The driver of the vehicle, 22-year-old Aliza Drouin, of Laconia, and a passenger, 35-year-old Gordon Potter, were arrested after police approached the vehicle when it pulled into a Dunkin' Donuts parking lot after reportedly weaving in and out of traffic lanes.
Police said Potter was allegedly hiding a hypodermic needle in his hand and refused to comply with the officer's requests.
Upon further investigation, police reported that Potter had an active parole violation warrant from the State Prison.
Once police searched the vehicle, they reported discovering a large hunting knife, a Kel-Tec 5.56 silenced sub-machine pistol and a 12-gauge shotgun. Police also reported that a small amount of heroin and prescription pills were in Potter's possesion, and a small amount of crack-cocaine was discovered on Drouin's person.
Drouin was booked and later released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail, and Potter was held overnight and arraigned this morning. He was held on $250,000 cash bail and a 72-hour parole retainer.
