For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Hampshire

CONCORD – A Manchester man was arrested for distributing fentanyl, U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young announces.

Thomas Holland, 37, was indicted on three counts of distribution of fentanyl.  Holland was arrested this afternoon in Manchester.  He will make an initial appearance in federal court in Concord tomorrow.  

The charge of drug distribution provides for a sentence up to 20 years in prison, at least a three-year term of supervised release, and a maximum fine of $1,000,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case.

The Drug Enforcement Administration is leading the investigation. Valuable assistance was provided by the Manchester Police Department and the Nashua Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Heather A. Cherniske is prosecuting the case.

The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
