Two charged in Nashua heroin sale
Arrests made after 3-month investigation
Two women, one from Lyndeborough and the other from Nashua, were both arrested on drug charges by Milford police last week, in connection with complaints brought forward by Nashua police.
On May 2, at 2:49 p.m., Milford police arrested Jubalee Rios, 20, of Nashua and Tasha Maddox, 21, of Lyndeborough, who were staying at the Milford Hotel, on a warrant issued by the Nashua Police.
Rios was charged with two counts of the unlawful sale of a narcotic drug, believed to be heroin, and two counts of criminal liability for conduct of another related to the unlawful sale of a narcotic drug, believed to be heroin.
Maddox was also charged with one count of the unlawful sale of a narcotic drug, believed to be heroin, and two counts of criminal liability for conduct of another related to the unlawful sale of heroin. Each charge being leveled against the pair is a class B felony, and each felony is punishable by up to seven years imprisonment and fines by statute.
The charges are the result of a three-month investigation by the Nashua Police Department, said Nashua Police Lt. David Bailey of the Narcotics Intelligence Division in an interview Monday.
At the time of their arrest, Milford police executed a search warrant of Rios and Maddox’s room at the Milford Motel, and anticipate filing additional charges, according to the press release. Milford police did not return calls seeking comment by press time Monday.
Rios and Maddox were both held at the Nashua Police Department in lieu of $20,000 cash or surety bail, pending their arraignment at the 9th Circuit Court, Nashua, on Friday, when bail was reduced for both women to $1,000 cash. A probable cause hearing for both Rios and Maddox has been set for June 10.
