North Conway, NH – A North Conway Man was arrested this weekend for allegedly having $1,400 in heroin. According to Conway Police they were conducting surveillance of a North Conway residence, where a tenant was suspected of being involved in drug dealing on Sunday. An Officer observed a vehicle leave the residence and pulled the vehicle over for a traffic violation.

Authorities say they discovered that a passenger in the vehicle, 35-year-old Robert Michael Lundrigan, was out on bail for Sale of a Controlled Drug and in violation of a condition of his bail. Upon further investigation Police say they found that Lundrigan was in possession of approximately 7 grams of heroin individually packaged. The quantity of heroin is approximately 70 doses and holds a street value of approximately $1,400.

Lundrigan was arrested for Possession of a Drug/Narcotic and Possession of a Controlled Drug/Narcotic With Intent to Distribute. He was brought before the 3rd Circuit Court- District Division-Conway where bail was set at $1,000 cash following a source of funds hearing.

If convicted Lundrigan could face up to 30 years in prison and a $500,000 fine for the Possession of a Controlled Drug/Narcotic With Intent to Distribute. He could face up to 3 1/2 to 7 years in prison and up to a $25,000 fine on the Possession of a Drug/Narcotic charge. Lundrigan could face additional penalties for violating the conditions of his bail.

The Conway Police Department encourages people to come forward with information about possible drug dealers in their neighborhoods. What is seemingly a small piece of information could be the key piece to a major investigation and, in the case of heroin, could potentially save lives.

Conway, NH – The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources is proud to announce that the Bolduc Block in Conway has been honored by the United States Secretary of the Interior with placement on the National Register of Historic Places. The building is significant both for its architecture and as an example of an early 20th century mixed-use commercial space.

A long-standing local landmark that replaced several buildings destroyed by fire in 1923, the Bolduc Block was designed to have four shops and a theater on the first floor and offices on the second. It was home to the first purpose-built movie theater in Conway.

Bolduc Block’s Art Deco and Art Moderne features include a flat brick exterior, a stepped parapet and projecting storefronts. The theater entrance is easily identified by a prominent marquee, echoing the original, that extends over the sidewalk and gold-painted wooden frames designed to hold movie advertisements.

The New Conway Theatre – which was later renamed the Majestic Theater – opened on June 24, 1931, showing a cartoon, a short comedy, a Technicolor geography lesson and the MGM comedy “Stepping Out,” starring Charlotte Greenwood and Reginald Denney.

Throughout its history, Bolduc Block’s storefronts were occupied by a variety of businesses, including a pharmacy, grocer, department store, sewing store, telephone business offices and post office.

The building’s exterior is largely unchanged. Despite a fire in the theater in 2005, the interior still has many features from the 1930s, including light fixtures, cast iron radiators and cushioned brocade fabric wall panels in the lobby.

Administered by the National Park Service, which is part of the U.S. Department of the Interior, the National Register of Historic Places is the nation’s official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation and is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate and protect our historic and archaeological resources.

Listing to the National Register does not impose any new or additional restrictions or limitations on the use of private or non-federal properties. Listings identify historically significant properties and can serve as education tools and increase heritage tourism opportunities. The rehabilitation of National Register-listed commercial or industrial buildings may qualify for certain federal tax provisions.

In New Hampshire, listing to the National Register makes applicable property owners eligible for grants such as the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program or LCHIP ( and the Conservation License Plate Program (
