CONCORD - A Farmington man was sentenced today to almost three and a half years in federal prison on firearms and drug charges in connection with a September 2018 incident in Dover.
According to court documents and statements made in court, Milton Police received a call on Sept. 7, 2018, from an individual who said that Alexander A. Tsiros, 37, a convicted felon, was in possession of a black handgun.
Tsiros, who is prohibited from possession firearms, was later arrested in Dover for violating a protective order. During the stop, police officers noticed a backpack on the front seat of his vehicle.
The Farmington Police Department executed a search warrant of the vehicle and found a Hi-Point C9, nine millimeter pistol, a black nylon holster, and ammunition. Police also recovered a bag of crystal methamphetamine, packaging material, and drug paraphernalia.
Tsiros was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison for drug trafficking and firearms offenses. He pleaded guilty to the charges on July 3.
This matter was investigated by the Farmington Police Department, Milton Police Department, Dover Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Debra M. Walsh.
