A View Street woman was arrested by Haverhill Police Thursday for driving with a suspended license four months after facing a judge on a cocaine possession charge.

Thirty-one-year-old Krystal Duke was taken into custody on Blaisdell Street at 7:30 p.m. on the new charge, according to a Haverhill Police arrest log obtained by WHAV.

Duke’s arrest comes four months after she was locked up following what Haverhill Police say were two consecutive drug deals on Haverhill’s River Street.

In April, Narcotics Unit Det. Dana Burrill Jr. and his team were conducting surveillance when they came upon Haverhill’s Michael Brulport and Plaistow, N.H.’s Robert Gill meeting up with Duke in the Red Hen Market parking lot. According to police, Brulport and Gill had allegedly carried out a drug deal at 79 River St., before driving to the Red Hen to meet Duke.

Once at the Red Hen, officers seized tan powder believed to be fentanyl from Gill and two plastic bags with a “white rock-like substance” believed to be crack cocaine that Duke hid in her bra, police said. It was Duke’s fourth possession charge. She had been previously convicted for possession in 2015 and twice in 2011, according to court documents obtained by WHAV.
