Arrest Follows Foot Chase
On May 16 at approximately 10:40 a.m., Lebanon Police Officers conducted a motor vehicle stop in the Glen Road Plaza, located at 165 South Main Street. According to the police department, during the stop, officers allegedly discovered that the driver, Brandon Mull, age 27 of Claremont, NH, was in possession of heroin. While attempting to take Mull into custody, he fled on foot, said Chief Richard Mello in a statement. Officers gave chase and were able to tackle Mull a short distance away in the parking lot. While fleeing, Mull allegedly attempted to discard a larger amount of heroin, approximately two ounces, said the police.
After catching Mull, he continued to resist arrest, and officers needed to utilize a Taser to finally take him into custody, reported Mello.
Mull was charged with Possession of the Controlled Drug Heroin with the Intent to Distribute, and Possession of the Controlled Drug Cocaine, both Class B Felony charges. Mull was also charged with Resisting Arrest, a Class A Misdemeanor. At the time of the arrest, Mull was on probation through the Grafton County Correction’s Division, said Mello.
He refused the services of a Bail Commissioner, and was transported to the Grafton County House of Corrections to await arraignment on May 17.
