Traffic stop leads to drug charges in Gilford

GILFORD — Three people were arrested over Sunday night and charged with a variety of drug and alcohol related crimes.
Police said a patrol officer saw a pickup being driven by Gregory S. McGuinness, 31, of 70 Rolling Rock Lane in Laconia weaving on Lakeshore Road at 10:14 p.m. McGuinness was stopped near TD Bank where he was charged with one count each of driving after suspension and driving while intoxicated.
After McGuinness was taken into custody, police went to take both Cheryl Noyes, 34 of Concord and Jeremy Berwick, 32, of 62 Perkins Road into protective custody for intoxication.
While searching Noyes' purse, police said they found some marijuana. Police also found marijuana in the pockets of Berwick's cargo shorts.
During an inventory search police found a glass pipe with marijuana and the remainder of a marijuana cigarette. They also found $6,000 in cash.
Police stopped searching and impounded the truck, towing it to the Gilford Police Station where Berwick, who owns the truck, gave them permission to search it further.
Police subsequently found a pouch containing an undisclosed amount of marijuana and some clear plastic bags.
Berwick is charged with one count of possession of marijuana and Noyes is charged with one count of possession of marijuana and one count of resisting arrest.
All three were released on personal recognizance bail.
