Published DateMEREDITH — Police netted about 25 pounds of what they are calling medical-grade marijuana after receiving a tip that it would be delivered to an apartment on Lower Ladd Hill Road.
The two packages were intercepted by police, who, just after noon, completed the deliverly via an undercover officer. Participating in the arrest were Det. Crp. John Eichhorn, Sgt. Mike Harper and Lt. Keith True.
Tuan Ngoc Le, 48, of Worcester, Mass. was arrested and charged with one felony count of possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
Police also confiscated about $3,000 — most of it in $100 denominations.
Harper said yesterday that he did not know Tuan and said it appeared he was renting a small apartment on a weekly basis in Meredith.
Harper said it is one of the larger marijuana busts he knows of made in the town of about 6,000 full-time residents.
Tuan is being held on $50,000 cash bail and will appear by video arraignment this morning in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division.
