Laconia man gets 4 years for selling meth at his Gilford auto repair business

July 20. 2018 7:15PM

CONCORD — A Laconia man selling a powerful form of methamphetamine out of his Gilford auto repair shop was sentenced Friday to serve more than four years in federal prison on trafficking charges.

According to court documents, Peter Dauphin sold “ice” methamphetamine five times in April and May 2017 to someone who was working with federal law enforcement.

All of the sales were at Dauphin’s business, prosecutors said.

Dauphin will serve four years and two months in federal prison.

“Even in the midst of the opioid crisis, New Hampshire continues to experience problems associated with the distribution of other drugs, including methamphetamine,” said U.S. Attorney Scott Murray. “Prosecutions such as this demonstrate that the law enforcement community is continuing in its cooperative effort to stop all forms of drug trafficking in the Granite State.”

The police departments of Gilford and Laconia, working with the FBI New Hampshire Safe Streets Gang Task Force, investigated this case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shane Kelbley prosecuted it.
