LEBANON, N.H. (WCAX) - Authorities say they hope the arrest of three Lebanon area men sends a strong message to would-be drug dealers to steer clear of the community.

The Lebanon Police say they executed a search warrant Tuesday at a Lebanon home as part of an ongoing investigation into drug sales. They say Damien Harrington, 25, and Cory Macelman, 38, were found hiding in the apartment. Both were arrested on previous outstanding warrants. They also arrested Dean Jones, 50, on various drug-related charges and an outstanding warrant.

Lebanon Police Chief Phil Roberts says while the arrests only resulted in the seizure of a small amount of cocaine and meth he says it should be a warning. “Not only to get the word out there but also a message to these people that want to traffic in Lebanon -- get the message out there that we will come and enforce it and we are on top of this so don’t bring it here,” he said.

All three were due in court Wednesday.
