Three people are facing charges after a traffic stop in Lebanon.
On Nov. 10, 2019, a Trooper from Troop A stopped a vehicle on Route 202 in Lebanon for multiple violations. During the course of the stop, it was determined the driver was attempting to provide a false name, and another Troop A Trooper arrived to assist. A roadside investigation revealed the driver was in fact Sasha Wooster, 28, of Berwick, who had a felony warrant out of New Hampshire for Possession of Dangerous Drugs. The warrant was extraditable out of the Eastern United States. Troopers learned that two out of the reaming three people in the car were also providing false names. A passenger, Shaun Laws, 29, of Rochester New Hampshire, was prohibited from having contact with another female (also inside the car) due to multiple Protection From Abuse Orders. Another woman inside the car, Shannon Houle, 27, of Rochester, New Hampshire, was found to have an active Maine warrant for her arrest for failing to pay fines for a Drug Possession and OUI charge. The warrant was for failing to pay fines for a Drug Possession and an OUI Charge. Houle was taken into custody without incident.
A search of the car yielded a significant amount of drug paraphernalia, and a small amount of illegal narcotics. After the individuals were transported to York County Jail, it was determined Wooster was concealing a small amount of suspected Crystal Methamphetamine on her person, and was also on probation for a drug charge. A Corporal from Troop A, who is also a member of the PACE Team also assisted with the stop. The individuals were held on the following charges:
Sasha Wooster: Held Without Bail as a Fugitive from Justice; Unlawful Possession of Schedule W Drugs (Class C felony); Failure to Provide Name to Law Enforcement (Class E), and a probation hold.
Shaun Law: Held Without Bail for two counts of Violation of a Protection from Abuse Order (Class D); and Unlawful Possession of a Schedule W Drug (Class D).
Shannon Houle was issued a $250 bail for the Arrest Warrant and Unlawful Possession of a Schedule W Drug (Class D).
