One year after a special investigation unit was formed to combat a growing drug crisis in Merrimack, the police chief says the problem is now manageable, but far from over.
“Meth is an increasing problem. It is not just heroin anymore — it is meth, it is everything,” said Chief Denise Roy of the Merrimack Police Department. “ … Unfortunately, this year already we have had 10 drug arrests. The arrests also coincide with three of our town residents — these aren’t people who are visiting, these are three of our town residents who died in an overdose in one weekend.”
