    Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, arrested four people on drug charges and seized more than $10,000 worth of drugs and $3,600 in cash this week.

    Tommy Walsh, 44, of Manchester, was arrested on Thursday in a McGregor Square parking lot after originally evading police during a brief chase the day before. When he was arrested, he had 24 grams of cocaine, seven grams of crack cocaine, two grams of heroin, five 30-milligram Oxycodone tablets and thirty 30-milligram Amphetamine tablets in his possession, in addition to scales, packaging materials, needles and more than $3,500 in cash. A search warrant executed on his car last week also resulted in the seizure of quantities of heroin, cocaine and a 9mm handgun. He was charged with eight counts of possession with intent to distribute, one count of felon in possession of firearm and a violation of bail conditions. 

    Arrested along with Walsh were his brother, Donald Walsh, 40, of Manchester, on one count of operating after suspension and two counts of possession of a controlled drug, and Adi Melkic, 26, of Manchester, on one count of possession with intent to distribute.

    Detectives continued their investigation and ultimately arrested Gregory Geneus, 33, of Manchester, on a charge of possession of a controlled drug. He was arrested in the area of Silver and Lincoln streets during a motor vehicle stop after 57 grams of cocaine were found in his vehicle.

    The arrests were made following a six-week investigation by the Manchester Police Special Enforcement Division.
