Concord police: Three charged in drug selling operation

A Concord couple is facing a string of charges after the police said they were caught selling cocaine, methamphetamines and oxycodone, among other drugs.

Myk Neuner, 25, and Kelsey McCarthy, 22, were arrested Tuesday following a monthlong investigation, according to Concord police Lt. Timothy O’Malley. O’Malley declined to discuss how the investigation began but said the two have each been charged with selling drugs on multiple occasions. They are also facing several charges of criminal liability for the conduct of another for instances where they aided in the sale but did not transfer the drugs themselves, according to O’Malley.

“One’s setting it up, the other is selling it, and then vice versa,” O’Malley said.

The police have also charged a man, 22-year-old Nathan Sarazin, who resides in the apartment where detectives believe Neuner and McCarthy received the drugs. Sarazin lives at Mennino Place, an apartment building at 51 Storrs St. owned by CATCH Neighborhood Housing.

The police have charged Sarazin with controlling a premises where drugs are kept but not with selling the drugs to Neuner and McCarthy. O’Malley said the investigation is still open and more charges could be filed.

Neuner and McCarthy, who live at 82 Fisherville Road, were arraigned Tuesday at Concord’s district court where both were held on cash bail, $30,000 for Neuner and $16,000 for McCarthy. The two are also accused of selling marijuana and Dilaudid, a prescription painkiller.

At the time of his arrest, Neuner was on parole after being convicted of burglary in 2007, according to department of corrections records. Neuner was sentenced to 3½ to 7 years in prison for that crime and was originally paroled in August 2009. But records show he was sent back to prison five times for parole violations. Most recently, he was released in September.

Sarazin was arraigned yesterday at Concord’s district court and released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail.

The attorney general’s drug unit and the United States Marshal’s Service also aided in the investigation, according to the police.
