Investigation of report of 'slumped' man leads to heroin arrest in parking garage

LACONIA — City police have charged a local man with possession of heroin after someone reported they had seen him slumped over the steering wheel of his car in the downtown parking garage.

Capt. Matt Canfield said the responding officer found Kory MacDonald, 28, of 129 Meredith Center Road at 11:30 a.m. sitting in a white Subaru with what appeared to be heroin in his lap and a large knife in the center console of his car. When he got out of the car, police found a needle near the driver's seat.

Canfield said MacDonald has been charged with one count of possession of narcotics and one count of being a felon in possession of a dangerous or deadly weapon.

He said police found between eight and 10 grams of heroin in his car.

Canfield said MacDonald refused bail and will appear in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division this morning.

He said police continue to investigate and additional charges may be forthcoming.
