            CONCORD - United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced that Timothy G. Zani, 39, of Berwick, Maine was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison for distribution of heroin.

            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,

            “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 in the Granite State.”

             “Heroin and fentanyl are causing deaths in record numbers and DEA’s top priority is to aggressively pursue and bring to justice anyone who distributes these poisons,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Boyle.  “Today’s sentence not only holds Mr. Zani accountable for his crimes but serves as a warning to those traffickers who are fueling the opioid epidemic.”

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