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

          CONCORD, N.H. - Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today that Almir Causevic, 32, of Manchester, New Hampshire, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute fentanyl.


           Court documents and statements in court showed that on April 1, 2016, law enforcement officers conducted a traffic stop in Manchester of a vehicle operated by Almir Causevic. A search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of approximately 244 grams of fentanyl and $1,200 cash.


          A passenger in the vehicle, Muharem Causevic, pleaded guilty to the drug conspiracy charge on August 11, 2017.


          “The United States Attorney’s Office is committed to working with our local, state and federal law enforcement partners to target individuals who are responsible for the distribution of large quantities of fentanyl in New Hampshire,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley. “While those who suffer from addiction need access to treatment, those who seek to profit from the distribution of this deadly drug will be prosecuted aggressively. I commend the work of the law enforcement officers who located and seized this significant amount of fentanyl.”


           "The state of New Hampshire is faced with a fentanyl and heroin crisis unlike ever before," said Special Agent in Charge Michael J. Ferguson. "Those suffering from fentanyl and heroin addiction need treatment and recovery, but those that distribute and profit from spreading this misery need to be held accountable. This investigation demonstrates the strength and continued commitment of our local, state and federal partners and our strong relationship with the U.S. Attorney's Office."


           Almir Causevic’s sentencing is scheduled for November 28, 2017. As a result of his conviction, he may also face deportation proceedings at the conclusion of his federal prison sentence.


          The investigation was conducted by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, Bedford Resident Office, Bedford, New Hampshire and the Manchester, New Hampshire Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Cole Davis is prosecuting the case.
