1 min read

MANCHESTER — In a concerted effort to curb fugitive activity and drug-related offenses, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office carried out an enforcement operation in the heart of Manchester, resulting in nine arrests and the execution of two search warrants yesterday.

The sweep targeted individuals who have evaded court appearances or violated bail conditions, and it was supported by the collaboration of local law enforcement agencies including the Manchester NH Police and the NH Department of Corrections Probation and Parole.

Among those apprehended was Kevin Sok, a 31-year-old man detained on a Rockingham County Superior Court warrant for failing to appear for a plea and sentencing related to charges of theft by unauthorized taking.

Sok is being held without bail at the Hillsborough County Department of Corrections.

Jonathan Colon, 35, faces a similar situation after being arrested on a warrant from Hillsborough County Superior Court North for failing to appear at a dispositional conference on charges of possession of methamphetamine and carrying or selling weapons.

Colon is also held without bail.

The operation also netted Christopher Wilson, 41, on a Merrimack District Court bench warrant for DUI – impairment, and Antonio Dustin, 63, who was arrested on two warrants from the Manchester District Court, including sex offender registration non-compliance and another DUI – impairment charge.

Wilson’s bail is set at $250 cash, while Dustin’s is $750 cash.

Drae-Shawn Hernandez, 28, was taken into custody on three warrants from Hillsborough County Superior Court North for failing to appear at his dispositional conference on charges including possession of fentanyl, criminal threatening, and disorderly conduct.

Like Sok and Colon, Hernandez is held without bail.

The enforcement yielded a mix of outcomes for others, such as Sean Dauria, 41, who was released on a $50 cash bail, and Brett Carter, 28, whose custody was transferred to another agency.

Jean Borgela, 29, was released on personal recognizance after a probable cause arrest for domestic violence simple assault and obstructing the report of a crime/injury.

Additionally, Jason Knox, 46, was apprehended on three bench warrants from Exeter, Hooksett, and Merrimack District Courts for driving after revocation/suspension and theft by unauthorized taking, with his bail set at $1,281.70 cash.

The two search warrants executed at a residence on 122 Market Street #3A were part of a targeted effort to dismantle street-level drug operations, with further charges for drug possession currently pending.
