Belmont Resident Sentenced to 60 Months for Participating in Fentanyl Trafficking Conspiracy

          CONCORD – Heidi Langevin, 44 of Belmont, New Hampshire, was sentenced to serve 60 months in prison for participating in a fentanyl trafficking conspiracy, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced. 

          According to court documents and statements made in court, Langevin sold fentanyl and methamphetamine to an individual who was cooperating with the FBI on two separate occasions at locations in and around New Hampshire.  On May 31, 2017, Langevin arranged for several men to purchase fentanyl from a supplier in Lawrence, Massachusetts.  The men drove together from Belmont to Lawrence.  In Lawrence, the men met with their drug supplier, purchased a quantity of fentanyl, and then drove back to New Hampshire.  On the highway near Derry, the New Hampshire State Police conducted a traffic stop and seized a firearm and a package containing approximately 111 grams of fentanyl.        

          Langevin previously pleaded guilty on October 30, 2018.

          “The five-year prison sentence imposed in this case should send a message to interstate drug traffickers” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “Law enforcement officers are watching and federal prison sentences await those who get caught. We will continue to work closely with the FBI, New Hampshire State Police, Laconia Police Department, and all of our law enforcement partners to identify, prosecute, and incarcerate those who are responsible for bringing deadly drugs into the Granite State.”

           “This case is just another example of how the FBI and our law enforcement partners are working together to target and dismantle drug trafficking organizations that are threatening the safety and stability of our neighborhoods,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division. “Our Safe Streets Gang Task Force will continue to aggressively investigate criminal organizations that target our communities with their drug-related activity and ensure they are held accountable.”

          This matter was investigated by the FBI, the New Hampshire State Police, and the Laconia Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Z.  Krasinski.
