Manchester Man Pleads Guilty to Distribution of Crack Cocaine

CONCORD – Darrius Weekly, 25, of Manchester, pleaded guilty in federal court to distributing cocaine base, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

According to court documents and statements made in court, between September 17, 2018 and November 7, 2018, law enforcement officers made five separate controlled purchases of cocaine base (also known as crack cocaine) from Weekly in and around Manchester.

Weekly is scheduled to be sentenced on January 10, 2020.

“Crack cocaine endangers the health and safety of our citizens,” said U.S. Attorney Murray. “We are committed to working closely with our law enforcement partners to stop the distribution of this dangerous substance in the Granite State.”

This matter was investigated by the Manchester Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles L. Rombeau.
