Maine Man Sentenced To 63 Months For Fentanyl Trafficking
CONCORD - Donald Fillmore, 42, of Exeter, Maine, was sentenced to 63 months in prison for fentanyl trafficking, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on November 14, 2017, members of the New Hampshire State Police conducted a routine traffic stop and encountered Fillmore. Pursuant to a consent search, the troopers recovered approximately 714 grams of fentanyl, which Fillmore admitted belonged to him.
Fillmore previously pleaded guilty to possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute on October 29, 2018.
“Fentanyl has been responsible for hundreds of overdose deaths in New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Murray. “I commend the New Hampshire State Police for their efforts in this case, which led to the seizure of a significant quantity of this deadly drug. By removing this fentanyl from the distribution chain, they may have given many people a chance to survive.”
This matter was investigated by the New Hampshire State Police. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Cam T. Le.
