Maine Man Pleads Guilty to Distributing Heroin

            CONCORD - Timothy G. Zani, 39, of Berwick, Maine, pleaded guilty in federal court to distribution of heroin, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, in spring 2015, law enforcement officers received information that Zani was distributing heroin in the Berwick, Maine, and Somersworth, New Hampshire areas. On three occasions between May 7 and June 10, 2015, Zani sold heroin to cooperating individuals at locations in Somersworth, New Hampshire.

           Zani is scheduled to be sentenced on September 4, 2018.

           “The distribution of heroin and fentanyl pose a great threat to public safety,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “We will continue to work closely with all of our law enforcement partners to investigate and prosecute those who are distributing these deadly substances.”

           “Those suffering from the disease of opioid addiction need access to treatment and recovery,” said DEA Acting Special Agent in Charge Albert Angelucci.  “But, those responsible for distributing lethal drugs like heroin to the citizens of New Hampshire need to be held accountable for their actions.  DEA and its local, state and federal partners are committed to bringing to justice those that distribute this poison.”

           This matter was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and Berwick (ME) Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Dronzek.
