Lancaster Man Sentenced to 60 Months in Prison for Drug Trafficking
CONCORD, N.H. – A Lancaster man was sentenced in federal court for drug trafficking, U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young announces.
Jason Greenlaw, 37, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Landya B. McCafferty to 60 months in prison and three years of supervised release. On May 16, 2023, Greenlaw plead guilty to four counts of distribution of fentanyl and one count of unlawful possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl and methamphetamine.
“Drug traffickers in northern New Hampshire continue to pose a state-wide public health and safety threat to all of our residents,” said U.S. Attorney Young. “Be assured that the tireless work of our local, state and federal law enforcement partners will continue so that drug traffickers like the defendant will be ferreted out, prosecuted and incarcerated.”
“DEA is committed to dismantling Poly Drug Trafficking Organizations like this one headed by Mr. Greenlaw, who are responsible for distributing drugs like fentanyl and methamphetamine to the citizens of New Hampshire,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Boyle. “Illegal drug distribution ravages the foundations of our families and communities so every time we take these poisons off the streets, lives are saved. This investigation demonstrates the strength of collaborative local, state and federal law enforcement efforts and our strong partnership with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.”
From early-February through late-March, 2022, Greenlaw sold quantities of fentanyl to a United States Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”) cooperating individual while at Greenlaw’s Lancaster residence. On April 21, 2022, the DEA and other law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant at Greenlaw’s residence and seized approximately 330 grams of fentanyl, 68 grams of methamphetamine, an unloaded firearm, and approximately $33,300 cash.
The DEA’s Manchester Resident Office, New Hampshire’s Attorney Generals’ Drug Task Force and New Hampshire State Police’s Mobile Enforcement Unit conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer C. Davis is prosecuting the case.
