Worcester man sentenced to 15 years in prison for distributing methamphetamine
BOSTON – A Worcester man was sentenced today in federal court in Worcester on federal methamphetamine charges.
Adam Germano, 37, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Hillman to 15 years in prison, five years of supervised release, and ordered to pay forfeiture of $73,343. On Oct. 5, 2018, Germano pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute and to distributing methamphetamine. Germano has been in custody since his arrest in March 2017.
Germano admitted to shipping large quantities of methamphetamine into Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Florida, and to distributing methamphetamine to dealers and others in Massachusetts and New Hampshire in exchange for cash. In January 2017, Germano arranged for a package to be shipped via U.S. mail from Las Vegas to Worcester. The package was intercepted and found to contain more than two kilograms of approximately 97% pure methamphetamine. In March 2017, during a traffic stop in Concord, N.H., police located methamphetamine and a handgun hidden in the engine of the car that Germano was driving.
Brian D. Boyle Special Agent in Charge of the DEA’s New England Division; United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; and Joseph W. Cronin, Inspector in Charge of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, made the announcement today. Valuable assistance was provided by the Merrimack and Concord Police Departments.
