SPRINGFIELD — A routine response to a hit-and-run crash on Route 91 led to the arrest of a New Hampshire man on multiple firearm and drug trafficking charges Thursday morning.

Trooper Nicholas Brooks of the State Police-Springfield was dispatched around 8:30 a.m. to investigate the incident.

Brooks located the suspect’s vehicle in a Main Street restaurant parking lot and identified the driver as 34-year-old Daryn Tacy of Keene.

The vehicle, damaged in the crash, was slated for removal by a tow truck.

But before it could be towed, Brooks conducted an inventory of the vehicle’s contents, uncovering a large pistol grip shotgun.

Tacy, unlicensed for firearm possession, was promptly arrested.

A further search revealed about 12 grams of a substance believed to be crack cocaine and a sandwich bag holding approximately 56 grams of a substance suspected to be cocaine.

Tacy was booked at the Springfield Barracks and faces arraignment in Springfield District Court.

Charges include improper storage of a firearm, possession of a firearm without an FID card, possession of ammunition without an FID card, trafficking in cocaine, and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony.
