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

            CONCORD – Alfonz Vei, 45, of Dover, pleaded guilty in federal court to distributing methamphetamine, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today. 

            According to court documents and statements made in court, beginning in September of, 2018, an undercover law enforcement officer (UC) purchased methamphetamine from Kristen Hodgkins.  On October 9, 2018, in Dover, Vei and Hodgkins distributed 43.6 grams of methamphetamine to a UC.  Agents observed Vei weighing out the methamphetamine on a scale just before Hodgkins took the drugs and delivered them to the UC.

            On January 11, 2019, postal inspectors intercepted a package from a fictitious address and addressed to a residence in Dover, where Vei had a prior affiliation.  Investigators observed Vei arrive at the address at approximately the time the package was due to be delivered.  The package was searched pursuant to a warrant and was determined to contain 444.4 grams of methamphetamine.

            On January 16, 2019, Vei was stopped driving a car in Exeter.  He had an unloaded Glock 9 mm firearm in the vehicle, as well as approximately one ounce of methamphetamine and 115 ecstasy pills. 

            Hodgkins previously pleaded guilty on June 19, 2019 and will be sentenced on September 25, 2019.  Vei is scheduled to be sentenced on November 14, 2019.             

            “Methamphetamine presents a grave threat to the health and safety of the residents of New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “In order to protect the public, we will continue to be aggressive in our efforts to identify and prosecute those who distribute this dangerous drug in the Granite State.”         

            This matter was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the United States Postal Inspection Service with assistance from the New Hampshire State Police and the Rochester Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John Davis.
