CONCORD - The U.S. Attorneys office that a former Lebanon, N.H., woman was sentenced to 40 months of imprisonment on Thursday following her conviction for participating in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy.
According to court documents and statements made in court, Heather Dubeau, 38, was involved in a conspiracy to ship methamphetamine from Arizona to New Hampshire. In May of 2019, DEA agents were alerted to suspicious parcels sent from Dubeau and a co-defendant, Gary Sewell, in Arizona to two different addresses in New Hampshire. Investigators obtained a warrant to open the packages and found that one contained over 336 grams of methamphetamine and the other contained over 665 grams of methamphetamine. The methamphetamine was intended for further distribution.
All of Dubeau's co-defendants previously pleaded guilty. Andrew Hutchins pleaded guilty on May 5, and was sentenced on Aug. 30. Sewell pleaded guilty on May 5 and was sentenced on Feb, 7 to 72 months of imprisonment. Eli Margolis pleaded guilty on May 27 and was scheduled to be sentenced on Thursday. Chad Rombow pleaded guilty on Jan. 26, 2022, and is scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday. Dylan Miles pleaded guilty on Feb. 15, 2022, and is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 24.
"This investigation demonstrates the efforts we will take to address the public safety issues presented by the distribution of methamphetamine into our communities," said U.S. Attorney Jane Young. "We will continue to collaborate with our law enforcement partners to vigorously investigate and prosecute those who traffic methamphetamine into New Hampshire."
"As methamphetamine seizures are on the rise, DEA stands committed to keeping this highly addictive drug out of New Hampshire," said DEA Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Boyle. "Today's sentence not only holds Ms. Dubeau accountable for her crimes but serves as a warning to those who attempt to bring this poison to the Granite State. This investigation demonstrates the strength of collaborative law enforcement efforts and our strong partnership with the U.S. Attorney's Office."
