The arrests were made Wednesday by members of the Problem Oriented Policing Unit after investigations by narcotics detectives. Police arrested:

While the investigation centered on claims that Karos and Marchant were selling oxycodone, police also found cocaine when they searched the apartment. Detectives said it belonged to a third resident of 6 Underhill St., Richard Marchant, 24.

He is charged with a single count of unlawful possession of narcotic drug – cocaine and was also held on $100,000 cash bail pending his arraignment, police said.

Hughes is charged with one count each of unlawful sale of narcotic drug – heroin and unlawful sale of narcotic drug – cocaine, both of which are second offenses. She was held on $100,000 cash bail, police said.

Sara Arguedas, 29, of 11 Salem St., Apt. A, Nashua.

Arguedas is charged with one count of unlawful sale of narcotic drug – heroin. She was held on $25,000 cash bail, according to police.

Reyes was with Karos when Karos was arrested, and police found marijuana in her possession. She is facing a single count of possession of a controlled drug. She was released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail pending her July 22 arraignment, police said.

The seven arrests made Wednesday followed the arrests of three other city residents the day before on similar charges. On Tuesday, police charged Paul Overacker, Lindsey Miron and Hector Colon with a number of drug sales charges.

Both investigations were prompted by complaints and tips from Nashua residents, police said.

They asked anyone with information about drugs or drug sales in the city to call the Narcotics Hotline at 594-3597 or to use the department’s website, www.
