Sting operation went down in parking lot of convenience store
West Lebanon, NH - A drug sting carried out by undercover officers Wednesday in the parking lot of a convenience store on Mechanic Street ended with the arrest of a Lebanon man who allegedly delivered a small amount of heroin to them.
Christopher Ransom, 55, who lives a short distance away from the Maplefield's where he was arrested, is being charged with felony counts of possession of heroin and possession with intent to distribute.
Lebanon Police said the bust came as a result of a drug investigation they carried out in cooperation with the New Hampshire Attorney General's Drug Task Force and the New Hamsphire Department of Probation and Parole.
