    A New Hampshire man and woman are facing a slew of charges after police say they found meth, heroin, pills and guns and a knife were found in the car they were in that was pulled over for erratic driving.

    Twenty-two-year-old Aliza Droiun of Laconia and 35-year-old Gordon Potter of Warner were arrested Thursday evening after police say a detective saw a car driving erratically between marked lanes on Route 28.

    Police say the detective followed the car to a Dunkin Donuts lot, and started talking to the driver of the car, later identified as Droiun. When he was speaking with Drouin, police say the detective noticed the passenger, later identified as Potter, had a large hunting knife and was trying to hide a hypodermic needle in his hand.

    Potter allegedly became upset and refused to listen to the detective's instruction, and back up units arrived to help at the scene, according to police.

    When police investigated, they say they found a small amount of heroin and prescription pills in Potter's possession, who also gave an officer a false name. Both Potter and Droiun were arrested then, police say.

    When the searched the vehicle, police say they found a Kel-Tec 5.56 silenced sub-machined pistol and a 12 gauge shotgun. When they did a records check, police say officers discovered Potter was out on parole with an active parole violation warrant and was a convicted felon. Furthermore, Droiun allegedly had a small bag of crystal meth in her rectum that was found and recovered by police.

    Droiun was booked and released on $5,000 bail, while Potter was held overnight and is set to be arraigned Friday. He's been held on $250,000 bail and a 72 hour parole detainer.

    It's not clear if they have attorneys.
