Two Charged in Drug Distribution Conspiracy

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Hampshire

          Concord, New Hampshire – Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced that Lindsey Parziale-McDonald, 28, and Larry Delgado, 29, both of Manchester, New Hampshire, were arrested on charges that they participated in a conspiracy to distribute fentanyl in violation of federal law.


          According to the criminal complaint, an undercover law enforcement officer purchased a controlled substance from Delgado and Parziale-McDonald on four separate occasions between July 26, 2017 and August 7, 2017. Each time, the undercover officer entered a vehicle driven by Delgado or McDonald and exchanged money for drugs while inside the car. Laboratory analysis confirmed that the drug involved in two of the transactions was fentanyl. Laboratory analysis is pending with respect to the other transactions. On two occasions, Parziale-McDonald’s two-year-old son was also present in the vehicle.


          Chief Enoch “Nick” Willard is “extremely proud of the dedication and hard work by all involved, especially the undercover detective who worked this case.” Chief Willard also wanted to reiterate the fact that the “Manchester Police Department will continue its efforts to combat the drug epidemic plaguing New Hampshire by working with all state, local and federal law enforcement agencies.”


          The charge carries a maximum term of imprisonment of twenty years and a fine of up to $1,000,000. Actual sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based on the United States Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.


          Farley stressed that a complaint is not evidence of guilt. Charges are only allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.


          The case was investigated by the Manchester Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Georgiana L. Konesky.
