Colebrook Man Sentenced To 37 Months For Drug Distribution And Retaliating Against A Witness

          CONCORD, - Glenn Adjutant, 22, of Colebrook, New Hampshire, was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison for distribution of drugs and retaliating against a witness, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.  

          According to court documents and statements made in court, on January 31, 2019, Adjutant sold Suboxone to an individual who was cooperating with law enforcement officers.  Later that same day, Adjutant sold Suboxone and Adderall to an individual who was cooperating with law enforcement officials.  Both sales occurred within 1,000 feet of an elementary school.

          Adjutant was arrested on April 9, 2019 and on approximately April 24, 2019, was released from custody with direction to report immediate to the Farnum Center.  Instead, Adjutant returned to Colebrook.  While in Colebrook, Adjutant encountered another individual calling her a “rat,” and then used physical force, striking her several times with a closed fist in her torso and head.  The attack was in retaliation for the individual providing truthful information regarding Adjutant’s distribution of Suboxone and Adderall to others.

          Adjutant previously pleaded guilty on August 23, 2019.

          “Drug trafficking has caused damage to large and small communities throughout New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “Drug dealers undermine public safety and we will not hesitate to seek federal prison sentences in order to deter their illegal activities. This defendant’s drug trafficking and efforts to obstruct justice have earned him a well-deserved term in federal prison.”

          This matter was investigated by the DEA, with assistance from the Colebrook Police Department, the New Hampshire State Police, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, the New Hampshire Liquor Commission’s Division of Enforcement and Licensing, the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Charles Rombeau and John S. Davis.
