            CONCORD - Roxanne Adjutant, 49, of Stratford, 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 November 19, 2018, Adjutant sold Suboxone to an individual who was cooperating with law enforcement officers. The sale occurred within 1,000 feet of an elementary school.

           Suboxone, a form of the drug buprenorphine, is an opioid and a Schedule III controlled substance.  It is frequently prescribed in the treatment of substance use disorders.

            Adjutant is scheduled to be sentenced on November 12, 2019.

            “Drug trafficking endangers the health and safety of our communities,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “In order to deter this hazardous activity, we will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute those who engage in illegal drug sales.”

             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 Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, the New Hampshire Liquor Commission’s Division of Enforcement & 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.
