U.S. Attorney Young Announces $736,842 in U.S. Department of Justice Grant Funding to Support the Accessibility of Criminal Justice Information to Law Enforcement
CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –Wayne Willey, 54, of Milton, was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to 20 months in prison for possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.
Members of the New Hampshire State Police and United States Postal Inspection Service seized a package containing approximately one ounce of methamphetamine which was destined for Willey. The package was shipped to Willey from Daniel Preston, a resident of Monument, Colorado. During an ensuing investigation, law enforcement agents determined that from January 2011 through January 2012, Preston shipped quantities of methamphetamine from Colorado to Willey in New Hampshire. Once the methamphetamine arrived in New Hampshire, Willey would repackage it in gram quantities and distribute it.
Preston pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and distribution of methamphetamine and is scheduled to be sentenced in May 2014.
The case was investigated by the New Hampshire State Police and the United States Postal Inspection Service, and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Terry L. Ollila.
