New Hampshire State Police and the drug task force were called to North State Street around noon on July 31, for a drug raid, according to witnesses.

Five cruisers showed up and troopers in bulletproof vests, ski masks, and dogs, moved into one of the apartments. Witnesses reported that dogs were trampling through the building and tenants were told to stay in their apartments. The task force officers allegedly tore through the man’s apartment, according to tenants. 

After seeing a journalist at the scene, an officer with knowledge of the raid reported that the apartment that was raided was that of an alleged heroin dealer, Jason Sfara, 39, who was being arrested and charged. The officer requested that pictures of the task force members not be taken during the action. At around 12:45 p.m., task force members left the scene. 

Sfara is no stranger to being arrested. 

On July 27, Sfara was arrested in Salisbury, Mass., on substance possession and possession of unlawful fireworks, according to the Newburyport Daily News. In 2011, Sfara was arrested on felony theft and theft by deception charges at the Shell Station on Loudon Road.

Concord NH Patch will update this story when more information becomes available.

Oh, boy do I just LOVE it when the drug busts happen practically in view of my home.

All that for one idiot Heroin dealer? I'm surprised Manchester's armored vehicle wasn't brought up.

He is well-known by the police. He was arrested in Florida for a slew of charges. The worst part is he will probably be out on PR bond before dark. http://www.arrested.io/florida/cape-canaveral/jason-m-sfara/2634288
