A detective met with Leblanc and noticed she had an injury under her eye. The detective requested to examine her hands but Leblanc declined to give consent, according to the affidavit. She was detained and a search warrant was requested for her hands at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center. Leblanc was also told not to wash her hands, according to the detective.

“While at the Nashua Police Department, Jennifer asked to utilize the restroom,” the detective wrote. “(A female) officer escorted Jennifer to the restroom. After utilizing the toilet, Jennifer placed her hands into the toilet bowl in an attempt to destroy evidence on her hands.”

Leblanc was then arrested on the charges.

Later, detectives and officers escorted her to the hospital to execute the search warrant. During the process of examining her hands and clipping her fingernails, Leblanc was accused of knocking the clippings off a table in the medical exam room, in order to keep them from being examined.

Leblanc was arraigned in Hillsborough County Superior Court South on Jan. 3. She is due back in court for a dispositional conference on March 2.
