CONCORD – A Connecticut man was sentenced today in federal court for drug trafficking in New Hampshire, U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young announces.
Jabreel A. Amir, 41, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Paul J. Barbadoro to 51 months in prison and 3 years of supervised release. On December 14, 2022, Amir plead guilty to the charges.
“Today, the defendant was held accountable for trafficking cocaine to New Hampshire,” said U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young. “Our federal and local law enforcement partners successfully prevented a significant quantity of drugs from impacting our communities, and we will continue to work together to prosecute individuals who contribute to this serious problem.”
On May 9, 2022, Amir attempted to deliver cocaine in New Hampshire to an individual cooperating with the government. Law enforcement officers surveilled Amir as he attempted to conduct the drug sale. He traveled from Waterbury, Connecticut to Concord, New Hampshire, where he was arrested. Law enforcement seized more than 2 kilograms of cocaine.
The United States Drug Enforcement Administration led the investigation. Valuable assistance was provided by New Hampshire State Police Narcotics Intelligence Unit. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer C. Davis prosecuted the case.
