New Hampshire Man Sentenced for Possessing Fentanyl Intended for Distribution

By DJ Harding –

A Manchester, N.H., man was sentenced in federal court in Boston for possessing fentanyl with intent to distribute.

Michael Warner, 30, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani to 77 months in prison and four years of supervised release. 

On Dec. 19, 2022, Warner pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl.

In August 2020, Warner was observed leaving a known drug source location in Lawrence. Once on the highway, law enforcement stopped Warner, who admitted to buying 70 grams of fentanyl, an amount consistent with narcotics distribution. 

Additionally, Warner committed this offense while on parole following a state robbery conviction.

United States Attorney Rachael S. Rollins and Brian D. Boyle, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, New England Field Division made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Philip C. Cheng of Rollins’ Organized Crime & Gang Unit prosecuted the case.
