Massachusetts Man Sentenced to 45 Months for Fentanyl Trafficking Conspiracy
CONCORD - Miguel Skrl Guillermo-Graseki, 23, of Lawrence, Massachusetts was sentenced to 45 months in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute fentanyl, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, between June and September of 2020, Guillermo-Graseki conspired with a Lawrence-based fentanyl distributor (MA Source) to distribute fentanyl in New Hampshire and Massachusetts to a confidential source (CS) and undercover Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force Officer (DEA TFO). Guillermo-Graseki was used as a “go-between” for the MA Source to negotiate prices and quantities of drugs and arrange meeting spots in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. During this time frame, the CS and DEA TFO made purchases totaling over 98 grams of fentanyl powder and 8,844 fentanyl pills.
“Fentanyl trafficking continues to present a significant threat to communities throughout New Hampshire,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley. “By trafficking in pills that contained fentanyl, this defendant put customers’ lives at risk because even one fentanyl pill can kill. To protect the residents of the Granite State, we will continue to work with the DEA to identify and prosecute those who distribute fentanyl and other deadly drugs.”
This matter was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation Safe Streets Task Force and the New Hampshire State Police. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Cole Davis.
