CONCORD — Jose Mitchell Marquez, 36, of Methuen, Massachusetts, has been sentenced to 15 years to life in New Hampshire State Prison for violations of the state’s Controlled Drug Act.

Marquez was convicted of transporting or possessing more than five grams of fentanyl with intent to sell, as well as four counts of knowingly selling more than five grams of fentanyl, despite having a previous felony drug trafficking conviction.

The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force initiated the investigation in March 2023, which led to Marquez’s arrest in May and the seizure of 812.17 grams of fentanyl.

Authorities say Marquez was responsible for distributing numerous kilograms of fentanyl throughout New Hampshire over a two-year period.
