SEABROOK — Police arrested Craig Noyes, 49, of Seabrook on multiple warrants for drug-related offenses following an approximately three-month investigation of the sale and distribution of illegal drugs in the area.
Noyes was arrested Thursday morning during a traffic stop on Folly Mill Road in Seabrook and a search warrant was executed at his home on Folly Mill Terrace, according to police.
More than 12 grams of heroin/fentanyl and more than $500 in cash were seized as a result of the investigation. The drugs had a street value of more than $1,300, Seabrook police said in a press release.
Noyes was held without bail on four counts of sale of a controlled drug and will be arraigned today in Rockingham Superior Court.
Noyes was also arrested by Seabrook police on Feb. 27 on two counts of possession of a controlled drug and a single count of possession with intent to distribute a controlled drug.
The charges were the result of an early evening traffic stop on Route 286 during which more than 50 grams of crack cocaine, quantities of heroin and fentanyl, prescriptions, and a semiautomatic handgun were seized, police said. The crack cocaine had a street value of more than $5,000.
Acting Chief of Police Brett Walker stated in the release, “This is Mr. Noyes’ second drug-related arrest this year and shows how individuals are able to continue their illicit activities while out on bail.
“Our officers were mindful of our previous contact with Mr. Noyes and were able to take him into custody without incident while keeping in mind the safety of the general public as well as the officers involved,” he added. “The sale of heroin, fentanyl and other opioids continues to be an enforcement priority for us.”
