Dover Man Pleads Guilty to Fentanyl Trafficking Charges

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

            CONCORD - Marc Martin, 44, of Dover, pleaded guilty in federal court to two counts of possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, in June of 2019, Dover police were notified that Martin was suspected of distributing drugs from his Dover apartment.  On June 19, 2019, detectives conducted surveillance of Martin’s apartment and observed a male enter and leave the apartment within a few minutes.  Officers confronted the male and he admitted he had just purchased fentanyl from Martin in the apartment.  After obtaining a search warrant, officers entered the apartment and located over 32 grams of fentanyl, drug packaging, and a cell phone that contained evidence of drug activity. 

            On January 14, 2020, the same detectives followed Martin as he drove to Massachusetts and pulled into a parking lot in Amesbury.  After a brief period, Martin drove northbound back to New Hampshire, where he was stopped for speeding.  During the stop, Martin admitted he had drugs with him and relinquished a bag containing over 39 grams of fentanyl.

            Martin is scheduled to be sentenced on December 1, 2021.

            “Fentanyl traffickers are seeking to profit from the sales of this deadly substance,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley.  “In order to stop the flow of fentanyl into the Granite State, we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute the dealers who are obtaining and distributing this dangerous drug.”

            This matter was investigated by the Dover Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joachim H. Barth.
