NASHUA – Sherry Miller, 36, of Nashua, was taken into police custody after officers responded to a report of an assault at her home on Main Street.

According to police, officers arrived at 243 Main St. on Jan. 22 and spoke with Miller, who claimed that she had been assaulted by another woman who had fled the scene.

Miller reportedly became uncooperative as officers proceeded with their investigation.

“Sherry stopped cooperating with the officers because she did not like their line of questioning,” said Sgt. John Cinelli, adding that witnesses identified her as the suspect. “Sherry was not assaulted according to witnesses.”

Based on allegations from witnesses, police were compelled to obtain a search warrant for Miller’s residence. During the search, officers allegedly found a BB gun and drugs.

Miller has since been charged with possession of a controlled drug, criminal threatening, reckless conduct and criminal restraint, misdemeanor obstructing government administration, resisting arrest and simple assault.

Miller was held on preventative detention at the Hillsborough County House of Corrections. She was scheduled to be arraigned on Jan. 24 at the Ninth Circuit District Court in Nashua Court.

Under state law, if convicted, Miller could face up to 12 years in prison and up to $31,000 in fines.
