Seven people were arrested and charged with drug crimes Thursday at a suspected Concord drug den where a person recently died of an overdose.

Concord police and a special operations unit searched the 52 Concord St. apartment in the early morning hours while executing warrants that Lt. Sean Ford said were “the result of a lengthy drug investigation.”

In recent months, police responded to several calls at the residence, including one opioid-related death, Ford said.

When the search was over, the property owner “boarded the residence and secured it in an attempt to prevent any re-occupancy and similar behavior,” Ford said.

Three people were charged with selling drugs.

Paula White, 44, of Concord is accused of two counts of conspiracy to sell fentanyl; selling methamphetamine; and posessing marijuana and methamphetamine.

Alex Mahan, 23, of Concord is accused of two counts of selling fentanyl.

Joshua Davis, 35, of Concord is accused of selling fentanyl.

Four others are charged with drug possession charges.

Joyce LeBlanc, 53, of Concord is accused of possessing methamphetamine. She’s also charged with maintaining “an illegal drug abode.”

Desiree Kenyon, 22, is accused of possessing methamphetamine and fentanyl.

All the aforementioned charges are felonies. The accused will be arraigned today at 1 p.m. at Merrimack County Superior Court. Two others are charged with misdemeanor-level drug possession charges.

Kyle Bissonnette, 26, of Concord is accused of possessing marijuana.

Eva Holland, 41, of Concord is accused of possessing marijuana.

These misdemeanor charges are scheduled for arraignment Aug. 14 at Concord’s district court.

Concord police have requested that anyone with additional information call Ford at 225-8600 or the crimeline at 226-3100.
