Stewartstown Man Pleads Guilty to Distribution of Suboxone

            CONCORD - Brian D. Rancourt, 44, of Stewartstown, pleaded guilty in federal court to distribution of Suboxone, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

           According to court documents and statements made in court, on August 1, 2018, Rancourt sold Suboxone in Stewartstown to an individual who was cooperating with law enforcement officers. 

            Rancourt is scheduled to be sentenced on December 2, 2019.

            “The opioid crisis has been fueled, in part, by those who divert and misuse prescription opioids,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “Those who engage in criminal conduct by selling or diverting opioid medications are endangering public health and will be prosecuted aggressively.”

                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.
