Dover Man Sentenced to 72 Months for Fentanyl Trafficking
CONCORD - Dylan Greene, 40, of Dover, was sentenced to 72 months in federal prison for possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute, United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on June 11, 2020, a Dover police officer observed Greene conduct what appeared to be a drug transaction between two buildings in Dover. Greene was subsequently stopped for a traffic violation. The officer learned Greene had a warrant for theft and he was arrested. During a search incident to the arrest, the officer located 20 grams of fentanyl in Greene’s possession.
On September 15, 2020, law enforcement officers received information that Greene would be traveling from Hampton to Dover transporting drugs. After observing Greene and another male interact in Hampton and then depart in a truck, officers made a traffic stop. A later search of the truck pursuant to a search warrant yielded approximately 361 grams of fentanyl, $2,190 in cash, and various items indicative of drug trafficking, including drug ledgers.
“Despite fentanyl’s deadly impact in our state, heartless drug dealers continue to sell this dangerous drug in our communities,” said U.S. Attorney Farley. “Drug traffickers who choose to do business in New Hampshire should understand that there will be significant penalties for their unlawful conduct. We are working closely with our law enforcement partners to protect public safety by holding drug dealers responsible for their crimes.”
“Dylan Greene will now spend the next six years behind bars after being caught red-handed trafficking fentanyl, furthering the scourge of opioids in our communities, for his own personal profit,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division. “This case is a testament to the strength of our law enforcement partnerships in New Hampshire and illustrates how there really is no such thing as a routine traffic stop.”
This matter was investigated by the Dover Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Gingrande.
