A Merrimack man is charged with possessing and transporting drugs, police said. Matthew Belanger, 23, of 15 Railroad Ave., was pulled over by police early Tuesday morning for a defective tail-light on the 1999 Volkswagen Cabrio he was driving on Executive Park Drive, police said. After checking Belanger's license, an officer realized it was suspended for several defaults, police said in a press release. The press release doesn't specify what drugs were allegedly found. Police weren't available to comment on how the drugs were found, and what sort of drugs they allegedly were. Belanger is charged with possession of a narcotic drug, transportation of drugs, operating after suspension, and prohibition. He was being held Tuesday morning on $3,000 bail pending an arraignment later in the day, police said.
