Nashua Man Pleads Guilty to Participating in Drug Trafficking Conspiracy in Nashua Area

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

            CONCORD – William Greenleaf, 43, of Nashua, pleaded guilty in federal court to participating in a conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, Greenleaf was a member of a drug trafficking organization that distributed crack cocaine and other drugs to various customers in the Nashua area.

            Greenleaf is scheduled to be sentenced on April 28, 2020.

            “Crack cocaine is an illegal substance that endangers the lives of users and undermines the safety of our communities” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “Together with our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners, we continue to work toward ending the sale of dangerous drugs in New Hampshire.  The action of the FBI and Nashua Police Department in this case, served to protect Granite Staters from the overall harmful impact of unlawful drug sales.” 

            "The investigation of this Nashua-based drug trafficking organization and its associates, including William Greenleaf, can only have a positive impact. It's our hope that lives will be saved, and that others are spared being introduced to the crack cocaine he either bought from the group and resold or helped bring into neighborhoods by driving its members to their own sales calls," said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division. "While we are pleased by Mr. Greenleaf's acceptance of responsibility today, the FBI remains committed to fighting the battles still to be won against those profiting from illegal narcotics in the Granite State."

            This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Nashua Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Georgiana Konesky and Anna Krasinski.

            This case was supported by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF).  The OCDETF program is a federal multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional task force that supplies supplemental federal funding to federal and state agencies involved in the identification, investigation, and prosecution of major drug trafficking organizations.
