Man jailed after police find pills
PORTSMOUTH — Seth Hall was arraigned in Portsmouth District Court Monday for allegedly being in the possession of three different types of illicit prescription pills following a traffic stop on the Route 1 bypass in April.
Hall, 28, with no fixed address, faces two felony counts of possession of a controlled drug.
The charges allege that on April 18, after being pulled over on the Route 1 bypass southbound, police found OxyContin and Vicodin in his possession. He also faces an additional Class A misdemeanor for possession of a controlled drug, namely Medroxy-progesterone.
During his Monday arraignment, city prosecutor Stephen Kasmar petitioned the court to set bail at $7,500 cash only because of Hall's history of defaults, prior convictions and the fact that he has no fixed address.
Judge Sharon DeVries granted the bail request and ordered Hall be held at the Rockingham County House of Corrections until his Aug. 5 probable cause hearing.
