United States Attorney Jane E. Young announced Craig Wiggin, 44, formerly of Rochester, New Hampshire was sentenced to 68 months in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in July 2021, Wiggin conspired with other individuals to sell quantities of fentanyl to an individual cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) and to an FBI Task Force Officer, who was acting in an undercover capacity as a drug customer.
The drug sales occurred at various locations in Rochester, New Hampshire and totaled approximately 225 grams of fentanyl.
Attorney Young said “Fentanyl continues to be a major threat to the safety of New Hampshire citizens. Those individuals who choose to distribute the drug in New Hampshire will be vigorously prosecuted,”.
“Today’s sentence should put other drug traffickers who are following in Craig Wiggin’s footsteps on notice that the FBI and our law enforcement partners are working together to identify, disrupt, and remove from our communities anyone who peddles deadly fentanyl,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division.
The case is being investigated by the FBI’s New Hampshire Major Offender Task Force and the New Hampshire State Police’s Narcotics Investigations Unit. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer C. Davis.
