New York Man Pleads Guilty to Methamphetamine Trafficking

            CONCORD - Edwin Martinez-Guzman, 37, of New York, pleaded guilty in federal court to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, after law enforcement officers learned that Martinez-Guzman was preparing to conduct a drug transaction, they approached him in a parking lot in Manchester on November 28, 2018.  Martinez-Guzman was arrested with over 150 grams of pure methamphetamine.     

            Martinez-Guzman is scheduled to be sentenced on September 16, 2019.

            “Methamphetamine presents a growing danger to our community,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “Indications are that traffickers are bringing this substance into our state with increasingly greater frequency.  In order to protect the safety of our citizens, we will be aggressive in our efforts to identify and prosecute those who choose to bring this deadly drug into New Hampshire.” 

            This matter was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Krasinski.
