Former Plaistow Man Sentenced for Trafficking More than 2 Pounds of Cocaine in New Hampshire
CONCORD, N.H. – A former Plaistow man was sentenced today in federal court for his intent to traffic more than 2 pounds of cocaine in New Hampshire, U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young announced.
Corey Buckley, 43, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Laplante to 37 months in prison and 3 years of supervised release. Buckley was also ordered to pay a fine of $5000. On February 2, 2023, Buckley pleaded guilty to charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
As a result of a months-long investigation into Buckley’s drug trafficking, law enforcement found approximately 1.1 kilograms cocaine in the kitchen of a residence where Buckley was living in May 2022. Law enforcement also seized a ledger and a scale, along with $50,000 in U.S. currency, and two firearms. Buckley has been detained since his arrest on May 19, 2022. The $50,000 in currency, firearms, and a Rolex watch were forfeited as part of the resolution.
The Drug Enforcement Administration led the investigation. Valuable assistance was provided from the Massachusetts State Police and the Haverhill Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Charles L. Rombeau, with assistance from Assistant United States Attorney Robert Rabuck on the forfeiture part of the case.
