Lempster Man Pleads Guilty to Methamphetamine Trafficking

            CONCORD - Jesse R. Lohman, 37, of Lempster, pleaded guilty in federal court to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

             According to court documents and statements made in court, on August 31, 2018, police encountered Lohman in the driver’s seat of a parked car at the Route 3A Park and Ride parking lot in Bow, New Hampshire.  Lohman was alone in the car.  After determining that there was a warrant for Lohman’s arrest, officers detained him and impounded the car.  During a subsequent search of the car, officers discovered six bags containing approximately 76.1 grams of 99 percent pure methamphetamine.             

            Lohman is scheduled to be sentenced on July 12, 2019.

            “Methamphetamine is a very dangerous drug that is appearing with more frequency in New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.   “Because of the dangers associated with this substance, we will work closely with our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute those who are responsible for distributing methamphetamine.  I am grateful to the police offices from Bow whose efforts prevented a significant amount of highly-pure methamphetamine from being sold in our community.”

            This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bow Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John S. Davis.
