Man sentenced to 51 months for trafficking Oxycodone in NH
CONCORD — A former Boscawen man has been sentenced to 51 months in federal prison for trafficking Oxycodone.
Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced Monday that Patrick J. Brooks II, 37, formerly of Boscawen, was sentenced to 51 months in federal prison for possession of Oxycodone with the intent to distribute.
According to court documents and statements made during court proceedings, in June and July of 2016, an undercover Concord police officer made a series of purchases of Oxycodone from an individual who, during those transactions, told the undercover detective that Brooks had been selling Oxycodone to her for 11 years.
On July 20, 2016, police executed a search warrant at Brooks’ Boscawen home. Police found nearly 2,000 30-milligram Oxycodone pills and approximately $20,000 in cash. The cash recovered from Brooks’ home included currency that the undercover detective had used to buy Oxycodone in one of the undercover transactions.
After completing his prison term, Brooks will be on supervised release for three years. The cash and other drug proceeds are the subjects of a pending state forfeiture proceeding.
“All too often, the road to heroin or fentanyl addiction begins with the misuse of oxycodone pills," Farley said. "Those who profit from the illicit sales of these pills are contributing to the opioid crisis in the Granite State. We will continue to devote our efforts to putting drug distributors out of business."
