Boscawen Man Sentenced to 84 Months for Drug Trafficking Charges

3 mins read

            CONCORD – Adam Beck, 26, of Boscawen, was sentenced to 84 months in federal prison for four drug trafficking charges related to the distribution of methamphetamine and fentanyl, Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced today.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, in October of 2020, investigators with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force received information from a cooperating individual that Beck was distributing drugs around Boscawen and Warner.  The cooperator assisted law enforcement officers in making controlled buys of methamphetamine and fentanyl from Beck.  Officers also conducted surveillance of Beck and observed him engaging in hand-to-hand drug transactions.

            On December 10, 2020, investigators arrested Beck on drug distribution charges.  On his person, they found approximately $1,200 and a small bag containing fentanyl.  That same day, investigators obtained a search warrant for a Webster residence associated with Beck.  During the search, investigators located nearly $15,000, approximately a pound and a half of methamphetamine, approximately 100 grams of fentanyl, and other incriminating items in a room that belonged to Beck.             

            Beck previously pleaded guilty on August 20, 2021.

            “Methamphetamine and fentanyl are dangerous drugs that are damaging far too many lives in New Hampshire,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Farley.  “As this case demonstrates, we are working closely with our law enforcement partners to ensure that drug dealers who seek to profit from selling these deadly substances are held responsible for their unlawful conduct.  This substantial sentence will ensure that Mr. Beck cannot endanger further lives by selling drugs in the Granite State.”
