On April 22, 2019, Lebanon Police and the NH Drug Task Force were investigating drug offenses at the Fireside Inn in West Lebanon. Officers observed what appeared to be drug transactions and made contact with a female, later identified as Corrina Carr from Springfield, VT. Carr provided a false name and attempted to flee the area on foot, and was taken into custody after a short foot pursuit. Carr had drug paraphernalia in her possession and was found to have an electronic bench warrant.
Further investigation led to Officers making contact with Jayme Charbono and Robert Tobin, both from Lebanon, NH. Both parties were being investigated for possession and sales of heroin. K-9 Officer Jeremy Perkins and his partner K-9 Blesk conducted an exterior sniff of two hotel rooms and several vehicles associated with Carr, Charbono, and Tobin. K-9 Blesk indicated positive alerts, which led to several search warrants being granted for the vehicles and hotel rooms. Tobin was found to have approximately 200 bags of heroin on his person.
Carr was charged with Disobeying an Officer and Resisting Arrest or Detention, both Class A Misdemeanors, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, a Violation, and the electronic bench warrant. Carr was released on personal recognizance bail and is to appear in the Lebanon District Court on June 24, 2019.
Charbono was charged with Sales of a Controlled Drug, a Class B Felony, and Resisting Arrest or Detention, Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, and Obstruction of Government Administration, all Class A Misdemeanors. Charbono was released on personal recognizance bail and is to appear in the Grafton County Superior Court on May 6, 2019.
Tobin was charged with Possession with the Intent to Distribute, a Class B Felony. Tobin, who is on Probation, was arraigned on April 23, 2019, and is being held at the Grafton County House of Corrections.
Additional charges are forthcoming.
