According to a Manchester Police press release, received Tuesday, March 11, 2014, Manchester Police Street Crime detectives arrested a city man on a drug charge Monday while patrolling an area reported to have increased illegal drug activity.

Police said, Scott Lasser, 28, of 138 Lafayette Street, is charged with the felony, Possession of a Narcotic Drug with Intent to Distribute.

The release stated that the Manchester Police Street Crime detectives, Aaron Brown and Mark Harrington were conducting surveillance in the area of High Street and Pine Street at 10:00 p.m. on Monday, March 10, 2014 when they observed two subjects sitting idly in a parked motor vehicle. The Special Enforcement Division, jointly with the Patrol Division, reportedly have increased patrols in the area of 452 and 456 Pine Street due to increased reports of illegal drug activity.

As the detectives monitored the activities of the two occupants of the truck, Detective Brown observed an unidentified female approach the truck, get in and then get back out after less than a minute. Detective Brown could not verify where the female came from, but felt her actions and mannerisms were consistent with that of a person buying or selling an illegal drug, therefore the detective notified a marked patrol unit. He asked Officer Horn to monitor the vehicle as he felt a drug transaction had just taken place.

The vehicle was stopped in a parking lot on Market Street, near Franklin Street, for the suspected drug activity as well as a defective break light. The driver and passenger, who had stepped out of the truck to speak with the officers were identified respectively as Scott Lasser and Jordan Hannah, 25.

Lasser was arrested a short time later for possession of 67 prescription pills, as he did not have a prescription for them. The pills were described as oxycodone, a schedule II drug. Each pill typically sells for $1.00 a milligram. Therefore, the total street value of $30.00 per pill would net over $2,000 for the 67 individual pills, police said.
