Northfield Woman Pleads Guilty to Drug Trafficking Conspiracy Charge

            CONCORD – Kristina Blake, 29, of Northfield, pleaded guilty in federal court to participating in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today. 

           According to court documents and statements made in court, on September 19, 2018 law enforcement officers encountered Blake and Daniel Irving in a vehicle near a convenience store in Concord, New Hampshire.  Officers seized from the vehicle more than five grams of methamphetamine and two firearms.  In addition, drug paraphernalia, including a glass mirror, digital scale, a ledger, syringes and plastic baggies were seized.   

            Blake is scheduled to be sentenced on November 21, 2019.  Irving previously pleaded guilty on July 1, 2019 and is scheduled to be sentenced on October 10, 2019.

           “The distribution of methamphetamine puts public health and safety at great risk,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “This is a dangerous drug that should be recognized as a rising threat to our community. In order to deter traffickers, we will work closely with our law enforcement partners to identify, arrest, and prosecute those who are responsible for its sale.”         

            “New Hampshire is being ravaged by a steady influx of illegal and deadly drugs, and today Ms. Blake is finally owning up to her role in contributing to the problem,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division.  “The FBI will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to aggressively identify and bring to justice those who threaten the health and safety of our neighborhoods.”

          This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Concord Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John S. Davis.
