Manchester OxyContin dealer sentenced to 8 years, 3 months behind bars
CONCORD – A man was sentenced to eight years and three months in federal prison for his participation in an oxycodone distribution scheme Tuesday.
Geoffrey McIntosh, 36, pleaded guilty to the drug distribution charges he faced on March 25.
According to documents filed in court proceedings, McIntosh and others passed dozens of false prescriptions for OxyContin pills at pharmacies in the Manchester and Nashua areas.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said McIntosh would arrange for runners to pass the fraudulent prescriptions at pharmacies. McIntosh would then buy the pills in exchange for pills or cash, and he would ultimately sell those pills on the street or have others sell them on his behalf.
Law enforcement officers identified over 100 fraudulent prescriptions, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
