       CONCORD, N.H. – Gregory Auer, 27, of Merrimack, New Hampshire, was sentenced today in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to 21 months in prison and three years of supervised release after pleading guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute-cocaine and oxycodone, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.

On March 9, 2011, Merrimack police officers responded to a single car accident wherein the police officers believed that driver was under the influence of illegal drugs.  The driver, identified as Gregory Auer, subsequently failed field sobriety tests and was arrested for driving under the influence.  During the booking process, a plastic bag fell out of Auer’s pant leg and the police had Auer lower his pants and discovered additional bags.  One bag tested positive for 14.29 grams of cocaine and one bag tested positive for 42 oxycodone, 30 mg. pills.  The police officers executed a search warrant on Auer’s vehicle and discovered additional illegal drugs including .68 grams of marijuana; 22 oxycodone, 30 mg. pills; 2.86 grams of crack cocaine and a digital scale.   Auer then admitted that he sold drugs.     

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Debra M. Walsh.
