A Concord woman charged with drug possession returned to the Salem Police Department hours after her arrest to demand the drug be returned to her, and she was rearrested.

An officer told Emily Morin, 26, he wouldn’t return the Suboxone, a highly addictive substance that can be used to treat heroin addiction, as it was in evidence. Police said they seized the drug Tuesday after arresting Morin for shoplifting at Macy’s department store in the Mall at Rockingham Park.

When Morin was released on $2,500 personal recognizance, she signed a bail agreement that stated she would not commit any other crimes once released. Police had also learned that her license and registration were suspended, and she agreed not to drive until they were restored.

But when Morin left the police station later that day, an officer said he saw her get into a car and start to drive away. She was rearrested after a struggle with police.

Morin was arraigned Wednesday in Salem’s district court on charges of driving after suspension, breach of bail and resisting arrest, in addition to drug and willful concealment charges.

It wasn’t clear if she had a lawyer.
