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

          CONCORD – Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today that Jordan Manning, 28, formerly of Laconia, New Hampshire, was sentenced to 96 months in federal prison for possession of heroin with the intent to distribute.


          According to court documents and statements in court proceedings, on August 2, 2016, members of the United States Marshals Service and the Tilton, New Hampshire Police Department arrested Manning on an outstanding parole violation warrant while at a motel in Laconia. Once inside the motel room, law enforcement officers seized approximately 193 grams of heroin that Manning had tried to flush down the toilet.


          Manning previously pleaded guilty on June 20, 2017.  Manning also agreed to forfeit a BMW motor vehicle that he admitted had been purchased with cash generated by his drug dealing.


          “As New Hampshire continues to face an unprecedented number of overdose deaths directly caused by opioid use, we will continue to work tirelessly to prosecute those who are responsible for distributing these dangerous drugs in our state.,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley.  “I commend the quick-thinking law enforcement officers who seized this large quantity of heroin.  Their actions prevented these drugs from being distributed and may have saved several lives.”


           This case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service and the Tilton Police Department.  Assistant United States Attorneys Jennifer Cole Davis prosecuted the case.
