NH man arrested in 2016 for fentanyl distribution pleads guilty
CONCORD — A Derry man who sold Fentanyl to a confidential informant in 2016 has pleaded guilty to three charges.
Anthony Barth, 25, of Derry, is accused of selling Fentanyl to a confidential informant in July and August of 2016.
On Aug. 17, 2016, the informant had asked for approximately 500 grams of Fentanyl. A meeting location was set up in Derry for the drug deal and arrest. When officers attempted to arrest Barth he fled, resulting in him hitting a police car before abandoning his vehicle nearby before running into a wooded area.
Police arrested Barth shortly after he entered the woods where he had also attempted to get rid of the drugs. A brief search by police resulted in the nearly 500 grams of fentanyl to be recovered.
Barth pleaded guilty to two counts of distributing fentanyl and one count of possession with the intent to distribute. He faces a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of life in prison.
He is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 14 at 10 a.m. in United States District Court.
