CONCORD - A Farmington man pleaded guilty in federal court today to drug trafficking and firearms charges connected to a 2018 arrest.
According to court documents and statements made in court, Milton Police received a call on Sept. 7 from an individual who said that Alexander A. Tsiros, a convicted felon, was in possession of a black handgun.
Tsiros 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.
Farmington Police then executed a search warrant and found a Hi-Point C9, nine millimeter pistol, a black nylon holster, and ammunition. Also recovered were a bag of crystal methamphetamine, packaging material, and drug paraphernalia.
Since Tsiros is a convicted felon he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.
Tsiros is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 9.
The case was investigated by the Farmington Police Department, Milton Police Department, Dover Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Debra M. Walsh.
