Police: Woman sold heroin hours before Jan. 30 arrest

Sweet waives probable cause; 3 others have March 5 hearing

JAFFREY — A Rindge woman waived probable cause on charges of possession of heroin with the intent to distribute during a hearing at the 8th Circuit Court on Wednesday.

Felicia Sweet, 25, of Rindge was arrested Thursday along with three others on heroin charges. Sweet was charged with three counts of felony possession of narcotics and one count of felony possession with intent to distribute.

According to a Gerstein affidavit filed at the Jaffrey court by Detective Jeffrey Seppala, prior to the execution of a search warrant at the Hasbrouck Apartments on Payson Hill Road, Sweet allegedly sold 1/ 2 gram of heroin to “an unwitting participant” for $60.

When Sweet was searched, she was found to have 3 1/ 2 grams of heroin and $700 in cash, including the $60 from the most recent alleged sale. Sweet was also found to be in possession of a Suboxone and allegedly admitted to police that she did not have a prescription for it. Suboxone is used to treat narcotic, or opiate, addiction. Sweet also was allegedly found with drug paraphernalia in the form of a crack pipe with burned residue, according to the affidavit.

After waiving her probable cause hearing, Sweet’s case will be forwarded to the Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene.

Arrested along with Sweet were Jacqueline Geoffrey, 24, of Antrim, Joseph Nagle, 54, of Rindge and Tammy Nagle, 52, of Rindge. All three were charged with felony possession of narcotics believed to be heroin, and were released on $5,000. The three are scheduled to appear in the 8th Circuit Court, Jaffrey on March 5 for arraignment.
