Manchester Man Pleads Guilty To Drug Trafficking Conspiracy Charge
CONCORD - Daniel Irving, 28, of Manchester, pleaded guilty in federal court to participating in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, September 19, 2018, law enforcement officers encountered Irving and another individual in a vehicle near a convenience store in Concord, New Hampshire. Officers seized from the vehicle more than five grams of methamphetamine and two firearms. In addition, drug paraphernalia, including a glass mirror, digital scale, a ledger, syringes and plastic baggies were confiscated.
Irving is scheduled to be sentenced on October 10, 2019.
“Methamphetamine presents a rising threat to the citizens of New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Murray. “This is especially true when dealers are in possession of firearms. In order to protect the public, we will work closely with our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute those who are distributing methamphetamine.”
"This case represents the continuing impact that strong law enforcement partnerships have on illegal drug trafficking. The FBI will continue to aggressively investigate violent drug offenders like Mr. Irving who target our communities with their drug related violent activity to ensure they are held accountable," said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division.
This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Concord Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John S. Davis.
