Suspected Fentanyl dealer in NH sentenced to 8-years in prison
CONCORD — An Ossipee man was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to possess Fentanyl with the intent to distribute.
Court documents and statements made in court revealed that Jeffrey Lamarche, 39 of Ossipee, was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by a state trooper on May 24, 2016, according to the Department of Justice.
An officer asked Lamarche to consent to a search of his person and Lamarche allegedly agreed. When the trooper asked Lamarche to squat and stand up, several cellophane packages fell out of his right pant leg, police said.
Lab results later determined that the packages contained 44.6 grams of fentanyl and 5.8 grams of cocaine.
“The United States Attorney’s Office is committed to working with all of our law enforcement partners to stop the distribution of fentanyl,” Farley said. “Those who choose to sell dangerous substances are jeopardizing the lives of the people in our communities. While people suffering from addiction need treatment, we will continue to target and prosecuted individuals involved in drug trafficking.”
