CONCORD, N.H. – DEA New England Division Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Boyle, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray and New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald announced today that 17 individuals have been charged with drug trafficking crimes as part of a joint investigation. Eleven individuals have been charged in federal court with participating in drug trafficking crimes involving Suboxone and other controlled substances. Six individuals have been charged in the state court with drug trafficking crimes.

Glenn M. Adjutant, 21, of Colebrook, N.H., was charged with distribution of Suboxone;

Roxanne Adjutant, 48, of Stratford, N.H., was charged with distribution of Suboxone;

Brooke Butler, 35, of Stratford, N.H., was charged with distribution of Suboxone;

Those charged in state court include:

 

Megan Adjutant, 23, of North Stratford, N.H., was charged with sale of methadone;

Erika Bodinski, 36, of Colberook, N.H., was charged with sale of Suboxone and conspiracy to sell Suboxone;

Tasha Smith, 31, of Colebrook, N.H., was charged with sale of Suboxone

 

As a result of a coordinated operation involving federal, state and local law enforcement officers, all of the above-listed individuals have been arrested.

 

Many of these individuals are charged with distributing Suboxone. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Suboxone is a drug that contains buprenorphine. It often is used to treat opioid dependency. However, because of its opioid effects, it can be misused. When this drug is not taken under a physician’s supervision, it can be dangerous and even deadly. For example, mixing this drug with other medications (particularly benzodiazepines or other sedatives) can lead to overdoses or death.

 

The DEA, U.S. Attorney’s Office and the New Hampshire Attorney General encourage all citizens to be sure to dispose of all unneeded prescriptions drugs in a safe manner. The DEA’s next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is on April 27, 2019. 

 

This matter was investigated by the DEA, with assistance from the Colebrook Police Department, the New Hampshire State Police, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Coos County Sheriff’s Office and the New Hampshire Liquor Commission’s Division of Enforcement & Licensing.
