Family charged in drug sales
Three Keene men who are members of the same family were indicted by a Cheshire County grand jury on heroin-related drug charges.
Christopher A. Sandor, 23, whose address is listed as the Cheshire County jail in Keene, was indicted on three counts of selling heroin; Mark A. Sandor, 43, whose address is also listed as the county jail, was indicted on one count of possession of heroin with intent to distribute; and Ryan Sandor, 21, of 20 Adams Court, Keene, was indicted on one count of aggravated driving while intoxicated while out on bail for a heroin-related charge.
Christopher Sandor and Ryan Sandor are cousins, and Mark Sandor is Christopher Sandor’s father, police said.
An indictment is not an indication of guilt; it is a determination by the grand jury that prosecutors have enough evidence to warrant a trial.
The indictments stem from an investigation conducted by the N.H. Attorney General’s Drug Task Force with help from Keene police in July.
The drug sting included surveillance of Christopher Sandor selling heroin on July 17, 18 and 19 in downtown Keene, according to an affidavit prepared by a member of the Drug Task Force.
Based on the surveillance, officers were granted an arrest and search warrant for Christopher Sandor’s house, where they found more than $1,000 worth of heroin and a scale in Mark Sandor’s bedroom, according to the affidavit.
Ryan Sandor was charged with possession of heroin and released on $1,000 bail, but a week later was charged with drunken driving after a crash on Route 32 in Swanzey.
The three men were among those indicted by the grand jury in September. The indictments were made public Monday.
Other indictments include:
u Andrew J. Tullar, 36, whose address is listed as the Cheshire County jail, faces a felony count of receiving stolen property. Tullar also faces misdemeanor charges of driving after suspension, reckless driving, resisting arrest and disobeying an officer.
On July 27, Tullar stole a Chevrolet Blazer presumed to be worth more than $1,500, Keene police said at the time.
Tullar was driving south on Route 12 in Keene near the Route 9 overpass when police attempted to stop him because he was driving erratically, Keene police said.
Tullar refused to stop and led police on a brief, high-speed chase onto West Street, police said.
Tullar eventually stopped in the oncoming lane and got out of the Blazer but refused to get on the ground when police asked him to, leading to a brief struggle between Tullar and the officer before he was handcuffed, police said.
u Nathaniel Wallace, 18, of 737 Marlboro Road, Keene, faces one count of selling oxycodone, one count of selling heroin, one count of attempting to possess heroin and one count of attempting to possess cocaine.
In March, Wallace sold oxycodone and heroin to another person, according to the indictments.
In July, Wallace allegedly arranged to meet with an individual cooperating with police to exchange a firearm for heroin and cocaine.
Wallace then arrived at the arranged location with a firearm, according to the indictment.
u Natasha Ingalls, 26, of 120 B Base Hill Road, Keene, faces one count of attempted sale of heroin and cocaine, one count of conspiracy to sell heroin and cocaine, one count of attempted sale of heroin and one count of conspiracy to sell heroin.
In May, Ingalls agreed to meet with an undercover N.H. Drug Task Force agent in Keene and accepted a payment of $180 from the officer for an “eight-ball” of cocaine and five bags of heroin, according to the indictment.
Ingalls then walked to a vehicle and left without returning with the drugs, according to the indictment.
In June, Ingalls again arranged to meet with an undercover N.H. Drug Task Force agent in Keene and handed the agent an amount of what was purported to be heroin, according to the indictment.
u Joshua Falis, 26, of 56 Church St., Spofford, faces two counts of selling cocaine.
Between March 8 and 15, Falis sold cocaine to a person in Keene, according to the indictments.
u Jeremy Provencher, 29, of 86 Scoville Road, Walpole, faces one count of selling heroin.
In November 2011, Provencher sold 15 bags of heroin for $220 to a person working undercover for the N.H. Drug Task Force in Walpole, according to the indictment.
u Susan B. Gibbons, 50, of Newfane, Vt., faces one count of willful concealment and one count of theft by unauthorized taking.
Gibbons allegedly concealed and stole more than $1,500 worth of merchandise from Walmart in Hinsdale in November 2011, according to the indictments.
