US Attorney says third person pleads guilty in Manchester oxycodone ring
CONCORD - A drug investigation that involved monitoring and intercepting phone calls has led to a third arrest in an oxycodone distribution ring operating in and around Manchester.
Acting U.S. Attorney Donald Feith announced Friday that Krystal Mailhot, 27, of Bedford, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute oxycodone. She is the third person to be plead guilty in connection with the drug distribution ring.
Police got a court order to monitor wire and electronic communications over several cell phones used by members of the group.
During the intercepted calls, investigators - which included the Manchester police department and the federal Drug Enforcement Agency- identified several telephone numbers that frequently called into the monitored telephones to order oxycodone.
Investigators say one of those numbers was used by Mailhot and another individual, and that between mid-June and the end of August of 2014, they ordered more than 2,000 oxycodone pills that Mailhot later admitted they sold to other individuals.
Samuel Garcia and Jennifer Nunez, who were her suppliers, have already pleaded guilty, officials said.
Mailhot faces a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment. Mailhot is scheduled to be sentenced on September 10 and was released on conditions pending sentencing.
Garcia and Nunez are awaiting sentencing, according to the U.S Attorney's office.
