Barrington woman pleads guilty to heroin distribution, firearms charges


CONCORD - A woman has pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and to five charges related to distributing heroin.

Crystal Watson, 35 of Barrington, pleaded guilty in court Monday after police received information that Watson was distributing heroin in the Rochester and Barrington areas in the winter of 2014 to 2015.

Officers executed a search warrant at Watson’s home on April 7, 2015 and seized $244,028 in cash, over 500 grams of heroin and three firearms. She admitted upon her arrest that she sold heroin in New Hampshire since at least March 2014.

Watson stated that she purchased two kilograms of heroin at a time in Massachusetts and sold it in New Hampshire for a profit of approximately $20,000 per kilogram.

The maximum sentence for the heroin distribution charges is 20 years in prison, and the firearms charge requires a mandatory minimum sentence of five years.

Watson is scheduled for sentencing on June 1.
