Belmont Officer-Involved Shooting Incident Drug Investigation, Interstate 95, Portsmouth, NH

On June 15, 2019 at approximately 1945 hours, Trooper First Class Brian Gacek, NH State Police Troop A, conducted a motor vehicle stop along Interstate 95 in Portsmouth for a speeding violation. During the course of the traffic stop, TFC Gacek observed evidence of recent drug use within plain view of the vehicle. The occupants consented to a roadside search and TFC Gacek seized approximately one-half pound of suspected Heroin/Fentanyl.

The owner of the contraband was determined to be Edson Wilson, age 42, of Augusta, Maine. He was arrested for possession of drugs with the intent to distribute. Wilson was processed and released and is scheduled for arraignment on June 28, 2019 in Rockingham County Superior Court.

These circumstances remain under investigation by TFC Gacek and further charges may be forthcoming. Anyone with further information is asked to contact TFC Gacek, via telephone, at 603-679-3333.
