A Concord man was arrested Monday on felony drug charges after selling a controlled substance to an individual who later died as a result of consumption, police said. 

In September, members of the Concord police and fire departments responded to Mayflower Drive for a reported drug overdose. The individual was transported to Concord Hospital and was pronounced dead. 

As a result of a nine-month investigation, police established probable cause to charge and arrest Timothy Byron, 35, of Concord with the sale of a controlled substance with death resulting and falsifying physical evidence. The charges are felonies. 

A warrant was issued for his arrest on May 22 and he was located and arrested by Hooksett Police on Monday. He was released on personal recognizance pending arraignment at Merrimack County Superior Court on June 22. 

The Concord Police Department was assisted by the New Hampshire Chief Medical Examiner’s Office and the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.
