CONCORD - A Berwick, Maine, man pleaded guilty in federal court today for trafficking heroin.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in spring 2015, law enforcement officers received information that Timothy G. Zani, 39, was distributing heroin in the Berwick Somersworth areas.
On three occasions between May 7 and June 10, 2015, Zani sold heroin to cooperating individuals at locations in Somersworth.
Zani is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 4.
"The distribution of heroin and fentanyl pose a great threat to public safety," said U.S. Attorney Scott W Murray. "We will continue to work closely with all of our law enforcement partners to investigate and prosecute those who are distributing these deadly substances."
"Those suffering from the disease of opioid addiction need access to treatment and recovery," said DEA Acting Special Agent in Charge Albert Angelucci. "But, those responsible for distributing lethal drugs like heroin to the citizens of New Hampshire need to be held accountable for their actions. DEA and its local, state and federal partners are committed to bringing to justice those that distribute this poison."
