20-year-old woman found hiding heroin in bra


MANCHESTER, N.H. ( – Early Tuesday morning, Manchester police stopped a car, but it turned out to be more than just a routine traffic stop.

At around 5:45 a.m., police assigned to the Manchester Police Crime Unit spotted a vehicle traveling in the area of Union Street and Silver Street. 

The officers thought that they recognized a different wanted person in the vehicle, so they stopped the car.

It was a case of mistaken identity, however, the driver,
20-year-old Shanti Santiago-Martinez, was found hiding about 6.7 grams of  heroin inside her bra, police said. 

She was then arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled drug and falsifying physical evidence.
