CONCORD - A Maine man pleaded guilty in federal court to possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, the state's U.S. Attorney's office announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, Michael Mowry, 43, of Acton, was pulled over by a New Hampshire State Trooper on I-95 in Portsmouth in May of 2018 for multiple traffic violations. Mowry was a passenger in the vehicle.
The trooper developed suspicions about drug activity and called for a narcotics detection dog, who alerted to the odor of narcotics. After the trooper advised the driver of the dog's detection, Mowry admitted there was methamphetamine in a backpack in the rear seat. The backpack contained 755 grams of methamphetamine.
Mowry is scheduled to be sentenced in August.
