Warrant: NH police shooter was selling painkillers
GREENLAND, N.H. (WHDH) -- As the small community of Greenland, New Hampshire prepared to say goodbye to their longtime police chief -- shot and killed in a drug raid last week -- recently-released court documents show police believe the suspected shooter, Cullen Mutrie, had been selling prescription pills.
The warrant also mentions that anabolic steroids had been found inside Mutrie’s home in the past and that neighbors had expressed concern that he had been dealing drugs.
The warrant shows officers believed Cullen Mutrie and his girlfriend, Brittany Tibbetts, were dealing "upwards of five hundred oxycodone pills every few days."
According to the document, a police informant, identified as IT, "spoke with 'Brit' via text messages and agreed to meet 'Brit' at 517 Post Road in Greenland, New Hampshire."
It also states: "An undercover officer and the confidential source drove to the above address."
The informant "was inside approximately one minute, then exited the house and returned to the undercover officer, providing the officer with ten 30 milligram oxycodone pills."
Officers went to the home to serve the warrant last Thursday. After they arrived, Mutrie killed Chief Michael Maloney and injured four others.
Both Mutrie and Tibbetts were later found dead inside the home. Police say autopsy results show Mutrie killed Tibbetts before taking his own life.
A wake will be held for chief Maloney Wednesday April 18 at the Remick and Gendron Funeral Home in Hampton. Public visiting hours will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The funeral will be held Thursday at the Winnacunnet High School in Hampton. The service begins at noon. According to police, more than 5,000 officers are expected to attend the service.
Meanwhile, police in New Hampshire say scam artists are using Chief Maloney's name for profit, calling to ask for donations. The Association of Police Chiefs say they never use telemarketing -- and if you get one of those calls, you're asked to get as much information as possible so officials can investigate.
