NORTHFIELD — A raid on a house on 146 Hodgdon Road Monday night led to the arrest of a local woman and the confiscation of about $9,000 in heroin and methamphetamine.
Police Chief John Raffaelly said he and six officers from Northfield and Tilton surrounded the home with an arrest warrant for 26-year-old Ashley Sargent.
Raffaelly said Sargent didn't open the door initially so police broke it down and found her and her boyfriend inside. He said the unidentified man was temporarily detained and later released while Sargent was charged with one count of possession of controlled drugs and one count of possession of controlled drugs with the intent to sell them.
Police said they found 55 grams of suspected heroin and 23 grams of suspected methamphetamine in a safe. Raffaelly said they found packaging material, a loaded rifle, and various needles and other drug paraphernalia in the home.
Police found $700 in cash.
She faces an additional charge of receiving stolen property for having a Polaris ATV that had been reported stolen from Groton and some stolen electronics from area retailers.
Sargent was held of $1,000 cash and $10,000 personal recognizance bail. He posted bail and has a court date of May 3 in the 6th Circuit Court, Franklin Division.
