New Hampshire Man Pleads Guilty to Distribution of Suboxone and Retaliating Against a Witness

            CONCORD, - Glenn Adjutant, 22, of New Hampshire,  pleaded guilty in federal court to distribution of Suboxone, Adderall, and retaliating against a witness, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

             According to court documents and statements made in court, on January 31, 2019, Adjutant sold Suboxone to an individual who was cooperating with law enforcement officers.  Later that same day, Adjutant sold Suboxone and Adderall to an individual who was cooperating with law enforcement officials.  Both sales occurred within 1,000 feet of an elementary school.

            Adjutant was arrested on April 9, 2019 and on approximately April 24, 2019, was released from custody with direction to report immediate to the Farnum Center.  Instead, Adjutant returned to Colebrook.  While in Colebrook, Adjutant encountered another individual calling her a “rat,” and then used physical force, striking her several times with a closed fist in her torso and head.  The attack was in retaliation for the individual providing truthful information regarding Adjutant’s distribution of Suboxone and Adderall to others.

            Adjutant is scheduled to be sentenced on December 6, 2019.

            “The illegal sale of prescription drugs endangers the health of our citizens,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “Those who engage in this activity should expect to be investigated, arrested and prosecuted. In order to maintain the integrity of the criminal justice system, we will seek criminal penalties against those who attempt to intimidate or retaliate against witnesses.”  

            This matter was investigated by the DEA, with assistance from the Colebrook Police Department, the New Hampshire State Police, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, the New Hampshire Liquor Commission’s Division of Enforcement and Licensing, and the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Charles Rombeau and John S. Davis.
