Mass. man pleads guilty to selling fentanyl at Rockingham Mall in 2015
CONCORD — A Massachusetts man has pleaded guilty after selling fentanyl at the Rockingham Mall in June and July 2015.
Acting U.S. Attorney John J. Farley announced Friday that Edward Garcia, 36, of Massachusetts, pleaded guilty to two counts of distributing fentanyl.
According to documents and statements made in court, in 2015 law enforcement officers were targeting the sale of heroin and fentanyl from sources located in Massachusetts when an undercover officer purchased fentanyl from Garcia on June 12, 2015, and on July 14, 2015. Each sale involved 29.5 grams of fentanyl.
“The United States Attorney’s Office is committed to working with all of our law enforcement partners to stop the flow of fentanyl into New Hampshire,” Farley said. “Because even a small quantity of fentanyl can be deadly, we will continue to work together to prosecute those who are responsible for distributing this drug and will make every effort to stop this drug from being sold in New Hampshire.”
Garcia's sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 23.
