“Drug trafficking affects people in all parts of our state,” said U.S. Attorney Murray. “Those who sell drugs illegally should be aware that the law enforcement community in New Hampshire is united in its effort to identify, prosecute, and incarcerate those who commit drug trafficking crimes.”
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.
