Colorado Man Sentenced For Conspiracy To Distribute

And Distribution Of Methamphetamine In New Hampshire

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Daniel Preston, 36, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to 60 months in prison for engaging in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and distribution of methamphetamine, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.

In January 2012, members of the New Hampshire State Police and United States Postal Inspection Service seized a package containing approximately one ounce of methamphetamine, a schedule II controlled substance, which was destined for a resident of Milton, New Hampshire. The package was shipped by Daniel Preston, a resident of Colorado Springs, Colorado.   During an ensuing investigation, law enforcement determined that from January 2011 through January 2012, Preston engaged in the weekly shipment of ounce quantities of methamphetamine from Colorado to New Hampshire.  Once the methamphetamine arrived in New Hampshire, it would be repackaged and distributed.   

            The case was investigated by the New Hampshire State Police and the United States Postal Inspection Service, and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Terry L. Ollila.
