Lempster Man Sentenced To 150 Months For Methamphetamine Trafficking

          CONCORD - Jesse R. Lohman, 37, of Lempster, was sentenced on Monday to 150 months in federal prison for 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 inside a glass case that contained approximately 76.1 grams of 99 percent pure methamphetamine.

          Lohman was a known member of the Brothers of White Warriors (“BOWW”), a prison gang.    

          Lohman previously pleaded guilty on March 29, 2019.  After serving his prison sentence, he will be on supervised release for ten years.

          “The heavy prison term imposed in this case should send a message to those inclined to trade in methamphetamine in New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “This is a dangerous substance, made more dangerous when appearing in this highly pure form.  In order to deter the distribution of this drug, we will continue to aggressively seek the imposition of lengthy sentences against dealers.”  

          "The methamphetamine Mr. Lohman was prepared to poison our communities with was concealed in a glasses case - an item that may have seemed completely innocuous to even his would-be victims. But there was nothing harmless about the highly addictive and potentially lethal drug that was hidden inside," said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division. "Today's sentence prevents one more violent, career criminal from staking his claim to the bleak landscape of addiction here in New Hampshire, and the FBI will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to disrupt the drug trafficking activities of others like him."

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.
