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

          CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE - Nathan Tremblay, 22, of Manchester, New Hampshire, appeared in United States District Court today and entered a guilty plea to one count of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person in violation of federal law, announced Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith.

          On August 10, 2014, Tremblay was a passenger in a vehicle that was subject to a traffic stop by the Concord Police Department. The defendant was carrying a Taurus handgun and 34 rounds of Hornady 9 caliber ammunition.  Concord Police also seized a backpack belonging to the defendant, and after searching it with the defendant’s consent, found three small plastic baggies containing the controlled substance marijuana. The defendant was a regular user of the controlled substance marijuana at the time he possessed the firearm. Tremblay faces a maximum sentence of ten years in prison and criminal fines of up to $250,000. Sentencing is presently scheduled for February 10, 2016.

          “The combination of firearms and drug use presents a particularly dangerous potential harm to the public,” stated Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith.  “Our office will continue to combat the threat posed when unlawful users of controlled substances possess firearms.”

          This case was investigated by the Concord Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Georgiana L. Konesky.
