Two Antrim women have been indicted on charges related to keeping and selling drugs from a Pleasant Street apartment.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt or innocence, but shows that a grand jury found sufficient evidence to bring the case to trial. 

Taylor Bacon, 20, and Marcia Whitney, 45, who shared the Antrim apartment, were both arrested on April 21 on possession charges, with Whitney charged with the additional crime of common nuisance, related to keeping a residence where drugs are kept and sold. 

Bacon was arrested on two counts of possession of a controlled or narcotic drug, one count for fentanyl, an opioid, and one count for crack cocaine. Bacon has a previous conviction for the sale of a controlled drug in the Hillsborough County Superior Court. The new offense is considered a Class A felony punishable by up to 7 ½ to 15 years in the New Hampshire State Prison or a $50,000 fine.

Whitney is also charged with two counts of possession, also for one count of possession of fentanyl and one count of crack cocaine, which carries the same potential punishment. Whitney is also charged with an additional count of common nuisance, which is considered a Class B felony punishable by up to 3 ½ years to 7 years in the New Hampshire State Prison or a $4,000 fine. 

Whitney has a previous conviction of common nuisance from 2013.

In other, unrelated indictments handed down by the Hillsborough Superior Court North this month, Virginia Warren, 33, of Antrim, was indicted on two counts of possession of a controlled drug, one count for possession of alprazolam and one count for buprenorphine. 

If convicted, the crime would be a Class B felony, punishable by up to 3 ½ to 7 years in New Hampshire State Prison or $25,000 in fines.

Also, Megan Lafleur, 26, of Antrim, was indicted on one count of criminal mischief for allegedly damaging a vehicle that did not belong to her, causing damage in excess of $1,500. The crime is a Class B felony punishable by up to 3 ½ to 7 years in jail or $4,000 in fines.
