Boscawen Man Pleads Guilty To Drug Trafficking Charge

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Hampshire

          CONCORD, N.H. – United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice today announced that

           Patrick J. Brooks, II, pleaded guilty in federal court on Thursday to possessing oxycodone with intent to distribute. Brooks (37) lived in Boscawen prior to his arrest.

           According to court documents and statements made during Brooks’ plea hearing, in June and July 2016, a Concord police detective officer made a series of undercover purchases of oxycodone from an individual who, during those transactions, told the undercover detective that Brooks was her supplier and had been selling oxycodone for eleven years. On July 20, 2016, police officers executed a search warrant at Brooks’ Boscawen home. The execution of the warrant yielded nearly 2,000 oxycodone pills and approximately $20,000 in cash. The cash recovered from Brooks’ home included currency that the Concord police detective used to buy oxycodone in one of the undercover transactions.

           Brooks is scheduled to be sentenced on May 30, 2017.

           This matter was investigated by the Concord Police Department with important assistance from the Boscawen Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Bill Morse.
