7 accused of selling drugs in Claremont, NH

Posted: Updated:

CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - Seven people have been arrested in Claremont, N.H., on drug charges after a months-long investigation.

Authorities say most of the suspects sold a variety of narcotic prescription pills to confidential informants throughout the city. The Attorney General's Drug Task Force says two people are accused of selling cocaine to informants. One informant said he saw one suspect keep cocaine, marijuana, and cash in a safe.

The Eagle-Times reports Task Force detectives, along with Claremont and Newport police, and officers with the Sullivan County Sheriff's Department went out Thursday morning start making arrests.

Six of those arrested are from Claremont. One is from Newport.
