Boscawen Man Pleads Guilty to Drug Trafficking Charges
CONCORD - Adam Beck, 26, of Boscawen, pleaded guilty in federal court on Friday to four drug trafficking charges related to the distribution of methamphetamine and fentanyl, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in October 2020, investigators with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force received information from a cooperating individual that Beck was distributing drugs around Boscawen and Warner. The cooperator assisted law enforcement officers in making controlled buys of methamphetamine and fentanyl from Beck. Officers also conducted surveillance of Beck and observed him engaging in hand-to-hand drug transactions.
On December 10, 2020, investigators arrested Beck on drug distribution charges. On his person, they found approximately $1,200 and a small bag containing fentanyl. That same day, investigators obtained a search warrant for a Webster residence associated with Beck. During the search, investigators located nearly $15,000, approximately a pound and a half of methamphetamine, approximately 100 grams of fentanyl, and other incriminating items in a room that belonged to Beck.
Beck is scheduled to be sentenced on December 6, 2021.
“Drug traffickers who seek to profit from the sale of dangerous drugs like fentanyl and methamphetamine are a threat to communities throughout New Hampshire,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley. “Law enforcement officers are working together to protect the Granite State from drug dealers and the deadly products they sell. This successful prosecution was a result of that collaboration and it prevented significant amounts of fentanyl and methamphetamine from being sold in our state.”
This matter was investigated by the New Hampshire Attorney General's Drug Task Force, Concord Police Department, Merrimack County Sheriff's Department, Webster Police Department, and the U.S. Marshals Service. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles Rombeau.
