NH man sentenced 30 months for possessing materials, attempting to make meth
CONCORD — A Keene man has been sentenced on charges of possessing materials to manufacture methamphetamine and attempting to manufacture methamphetamine.
Police stopped Jesse Dennis, 32, of Keene, for traffic infractions on June 13, 2016. During the traffic stop, Dennis allowed police to search his vehicle and they found a number of items and ingredients used to make meth. He admitted to attempting to make meth on multiple occasions.
The New Hampshire State Police lab confirmed that the materials found in Dennis' car were consistent with those used in the manufacturing of meth.
Dennis pleaded guilty to the charges of possessing materials to manufacture meth and attempting to manufacture meth. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release.
The acting U.S. Attorney John J. Farley says that meth users are not the only ones in danger as the manufacturing process sometimes leads to fires and explosions.
