CONCORD – A Massachusetts man has been charged in connection with his possession and intent to distribute over two pounds of suspected fentanyl in New Hampshire, U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young announces.

Eddy Antonio Perdomo, 29, appeared before Magistrate Judge Daniel J. Lynch for an initial appearance in federal court on May 1, 2023. Perdomo’s detention hearing is scheduled for May 3, 2023.

According to the charging documents, Perdomo arranged to sell a kilogram of fentanyl to a confidential source in Ashland, New Hampshire on April 29, 2023.  The car traveling from Massachusetts, in which Perdomo was a passenger, was stopped in a parking lot in Ashland.  Investigators found suspected fentanyl on the floor of the passenger seat, between Perdomo’s feet.

The charge of possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, at least three years 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 U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration led the investigation. 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.
