Concord Man Pleads Guilty to Drug Trafficking and Firearms Offenses

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

            CONCORD - Tyler Cady, 30, of Concord, pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to possess controlled substances with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm in furtherance of that conspiracy, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, on March 4, 2020, an individual who was cooperating with law enforcement agents arranged to conduct a methamphetamine transaction that would involve Cady and another individual.  Agents observed Cady arrive for the transaction in Dover, where he began to conduct the drug deal.  When agents sought to arrest Cady, he had over 111 grams of 100 percent pure methamphetamine on his lap.  A search of Cady’s person revealed approximately seven grams of fentanyl.  Over $8,000 in cash was found in Cady’s vehicle and on his person.  A search of Cady’s vehicle revealed a knapsack containing approximately 252 grams of highly pure methamphetamine.  The vehicle also contained a loaded sawed-off shotgun, a pistol, a scale, and money counter.             

            Cady is scheduled to be sentenced on June 2, 2021.  Under his plea agreement, he will forfeit the cash, firearms, and ammunition to the United States.

            “Drug trafficking and firearms are a potentially deadly combination,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “The extreme danger posed by deadly drugs like methamphetamine is only heightened when the drug dealers are armed with guns.  In order to protect public health and safety, we aggressively investigate and prosecute the armed drug traffickers who endanger the citizens of the Granite State.”

            This matter was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, with assistance from the New Hampshire State Police and the Colebrook Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John S. Davis.
