CONCORD — A local woman who had been targeted by Laconia Police for arrest in an early May 2016 drug sweep has been rearrested by the state Drug Task Force for sales of methamphetamine.
Myranda Clifton, 31, no address given, was also charged with possession of Suboxone and methamphetamine when she was arrested by the drug task force Tuesday.
Clifton was held on $5,000 cash bail and was arraigned Wednesday morning in the 6th Circuit Court, Concord Division.
She is also scheduled to appear for arraignment on a Laconia drug sales charge Thursday morning.
Clifton is one of 33 people for whom police had arrest warrants for drug sales in May. She was not arrested in the initial sweep of May 6 but was taken into custody at a later date.
A second person arrested by Laconia Police during a different drug sweep in August of 2015 was sentenced Wednesday to two consecutive 12-month terms at the Belknap County House of Corrections - one for sales of drugs in June of 2015 and one for driving after being deemed an habitual offender.
James York, 32, formerly of 11 Jewett St., Apt. E, was also sentenced to two to four years in state prison for a second count of sales of heroin in July of 2015. That sentence was suspended on the condition he remain of good behavior.
