Milton Man Sentenced on Drug Trafficking Charges

            CONCORD – United States Attorney Scott W. Murray today announced that

            Jason L. Brewer, 36, of Milton, New Hampshire was sentenced to time served (over 15 months) for participating in a conspiracy to possess a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, on July 12, 2016, a New Hampshire State Police trooper observed Brewer commit multiple motor vehicle violations while driving northbound on Interstate 95.  The trooper executed a traffic stop of Brewer’s car near the Hampton tolls.  Timothy Kondroski was a passenger in the car.  During the traffic stop, the trooper observed evidence of drug possession.  While the trooper questioned Brewer and Kondroski, Kondroski fled and darted across four lanes of the interstate highway toward the barriers that divided the cash tolls from the open road tolling lanes.  The trooper chased Kondroski, yelling at him to stop.  The trooper eventually caught up to Kondroski at the barriers, which Kondroski was attempting to climb over.  During the chase, Kondroski’s sneakers fell off.  When retrieving them from the roadway, the troopers found a bag containing approximately 35 grams of heroin.  A second bag containing approximately one ounce of cocaine was recovered from inside one of Kondroski’s sneakers.  Kondroski and Brewer both eventually admitted to buying the drugs in Lawrence, Massachusetts.  Kondroski further acknowledged that he paid $2700 for the drugs and intended to sell them.

            Brewer previously pleaded guilty on August 1, 2017.  Co-defendant Timothy W. Kondroski, was sentenced on January 8, 2018 to 54 months in prison.         

            “Interstate drug trafficking continues to endanger lives throughout New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “Determined action by the state trooper prevented the drugs from reaching their intended destination and ensured that Mr. Brewer was before a judge today to face justice. Traffickers should be aware that federal prison terms await those who engage in the drug trade.”

            This matter was investigated by the New Hampshire State Police.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Dronzek.  Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Bill Morse also participated in the prosecution of this case.
