Traffic stop leads to drug bust
BROOKLINE, N.H. (AP) - Police in Brookline, N.H., say a traffic stop has yielded what may be the biggest marijuana seizure in the town's history.
It began about 10:30 p.m. Thursday, when police Officer Olivia Dudley, driving to work, saw a Volvo station wagon in front of her involved in several moving violations. Interim Police Chief Michael Kurland says that when she pulled it over, a search found $600 in cash and the marijuana, which had an estimated street value of $30,000.
Thirty-one-year-old Marvin Collins, of Auburn, was charged with possession with intent to distribute, transportation of drugs, possession of metallic knuckles, providing a false report to police, operating after suspension, obstruction of government administration, disobeying a police officer and several traffic offenses.
Collins was cited into Milford District Court on Dec. 7.
