MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Police in Manchester say an officer who stopped a driver talking on his cellphone under New Hampshire’s “hands-free” law ended up arresting him on drug charges after finding heroin in a fake soda can.

Police said the drug was found in what looked like a Diet Coke can in a satchel on Saturday. More heroin and cocaine were found in the bag and prescription drugs were found in a container.

Alejandro “Alex” Guillermo of Manchester was arrested on drug charges and on a charge of felonious use of a firearm.

The 39-year-old Guillermo was was released on $20,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Aug. 26. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer and a phone number for an Alejandro Guillermo was not answered.
