horton 041218On February 26, 2018, Matthew Horton, age 28, was arrested by the Lebanon Police Department after officers came across Horton while checking on a suspicious truck parked behind a local business. During the investigation, several plastic bags containing a white powder, suspected to be drugs, were recovered. Additionally, Horton provided officers with a false name during their interaction. 

Horton was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Drug, and Possession of a Controlled Drug with Intent to Sell, both Class B Felony charges. He was also charged with False Report to Law Enforcement, a Class A Misdemeanor, for providing a false name. While being processed at the station, Horton was found to have a warrant from New Hampshire Parole and Probation out of Sullivan County, and a warrant from the Exeter Police Department for Possession of a Controlled Drug and False Report to an Officer. Horton refused bail and was transported to the Grafton County House of Corrections.

The white powder was sent to be tested at the New Hampshire State Forensic Laboratory. On April 9, Lebanon Police received Lab results indicating the white powder was pure Fentanyl. The street value of pure Fentanyl is about $1.00 per microgram, or approximately $30,000 for the 31.5 grams that were in Horton’s possession. Horton is currently being held at the Grafton County House of Corrections on $10,000 cash only bail.
