The Eagle-Tribune

---- — A Salem man was one of six people arrested recently as the result of investigations by the New Hampshire State Police Narcotics and Investigations Unit.

Jack Hutchison, 24, was arrested at the Troop B barracks in Bedford and charged with two counts of uttering an altered prescription and one count of obtaining a controlled drug by fraud (doctor shopping).

The Drug Diversion Section completed a three-week investigation into Hutchison’s alleged drug diversion activities.

Hutchison allegedly saw more than 20 medical practitioners in order to obtain Adderall, a controlled drug.

Police said Hutchison allegedly altered two prescriptions for Adderall in order to obtain the prescription sooner than allowed.

He was released on $7,500 personal recognizance.

Hutchison has three court dates: Jan. 15 in 9th Circuit Court in Nashua; Jan. 23 in 9th Circuit Court in Merrimack; and Jan. 27 in 6th Circuit Court in Concord.
