• NH police make drug arrest while responding to noise complaint


    MANCHESTER, NH (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) Police in New Hampshire nabbed an accused drug dealer while responding to a noise complaint on Thursday night.

    Manchester Police say they responded to an apartment on Green Street at about 10:30 p.m. after a neighbor called to complain about loud music.

    Upon arrival to the apartment, investigators say they noticed the strong smell of marijuana coming from the residence. The resident of the apartment, identified as 21-year-old Carlos Banks, reportedly invited officers into his home after they met him in the rear of the apartment.

    Once inside, investigators claim to have observed a glass jar with what appeared to be marijuana in it on a coffee table. They allege that there were also several small piles of the suspected marijuana on the table alongside a small scale, several plastic bags, and other drug-related paraphernalia.

    Banks was arrested for possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute.

    Later in the evening, officers returned with a search warrant and claim they found seven more glass jars of the substance, as well as another scale and bags.
