    Warrants issued

    for heroin suspects

    MANCHESTER — Officers from the Winhall Police Department and the Manchester Police Department arrested two people on the morning of Feb. 9 at a Route 11/30 hotel and cited them for possession of heroin and cocaine, according to Sgt. Josh Epstein of the Winhall Police Department.

    Acting on a tip, police spoke with Brittany Herrmann, 25, of Londonderry, and Joseph Giordano, 26, of Manchester, around 2:30 a.m.

    Herrmann and Giordano allowed police to search the hotel room.

    About 12 grams of heroin, 4.5 grams of cocaine and more than 300 used hypodermic needles were found and seized by police, Epstein said.

    Herrmann and Giordano were released after being cited to appear in Bennington criminal court Monday where they would have each been charged with three felonies, heroin trafficking, possession of heroin and possession of cocaine.

    However, neither of them appeared in court Monday so arrest warrants, setting bail at $100,000, were issued from Bennington criminal court.
