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

CONCORD – A Boston man was sentenced today in federal court in Concord for possession with intent to distribute controlled substances in New Hampshire, U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young announces.

Anthony Govan, 30, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Laplante to 24 months in prison and 3 years of supervised release.  

“The defendant trafficked lethal narcotics to the Granite State,” U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young. “His sentence serves as a warning that trafficking, any amount of fentanyl and crack cocaine to New Hampshire, will have consequences.”

According to Court documents and statements made in Court, Govan’s charges stem from a 2019 traffic-stop along I-95 in Portsmouth.  Govan was a passenger in the vehicle and was found to be in possession of distribution quantities of fentanyl and crack cocaine.  Govan has been in state custody in Massachusetts on unrelated charges since August 2021.

United States Attorney Jane E. Young made the announcement today. The New Hampshire State Police led the investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kasey Weiland prosecuted the case.
