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

          CONCORD, N.H. - Taheem Mungo, 35, of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced in federal court to seven years in prison for drug trafficking, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.

 

          According to court documents and statements made in court, New Hampshire State Police Troopers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in which Mungo was a passenger on September 1, 2016. The stop occurred on Interstate 95 around Hampton, New Hampshire.  Police arrested Mungo after learning that he had an active arrest warrant out of New York. Mungo then consented to a search of his luggage, which resulted in the seizure of controlled substances, including approximately 172 grams of crack cocaine and 10 grams of heroin.

 

          Mungo pleaded guilty to possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute on July 26, 2017.  He will serve three years of supervised release following his release from federal prison.

 

          “Drug trafficking continues to pose a significant danger to the health and welfare of our communities,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley.  “I commend the efforts of the State Police in this matter.  Their investigative work prevented these drugs from being distributed in the Granite State.”

 

          This matter was investigated by the New Hampshire State Police.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Shane Bullitt Kelbley.
