MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Manchester police say a 39-year-old man stopped for using a handheld cell phone had drugs including heroin in his possession.

An officer observed Alejandro Guillermo of Manchester using the phone Saturday evening. Since July 1, driving while using a handheld cell phone is illegal in the state.

The officer also noticed an invalid inspection sticker and stopped Guillermo’s car.

When they searched the car, police say they found prescription drugs, cocaine and heroin, including some stuffed in a fake soft drink can. Police say Guillermo also had a handgun in a shoulder holster.

Guillermo faces drug and weapons charges. He was released on $20,000 bail. A phone number listed in Guillermo’s name was out of service Monday. It could not immediately be learned if he has a lawyer.
