Lawrence Man Pleads Guilty to Distributing Fentanyl

            CONCORD - Anthony Cabrera, 27, of Lawrence, pleaded guilty in federal court to distribution of fentanyl, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, on March 12, 2019, the defendant traveled from Massachusetts to New Hampshire and sold approximately 49 grams of fentanyl to an undercover officer in Salem, New Hampshire.         

            Cabrera is scheduled to be sentenced on September 23, 2019.

            “Stopping interstate fentanyl trafficking is a primary goal for law enforcement in New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “In order to prevent the distribution of this lethal drug, we will prioritize coordination with all of our law enforcement partners to identify, arrest, and prosecute those who are responsible for bringing this deadly substance into the Granite State.”

            This matter was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Krasinski.
