Ex-Concord teacher accused of mailing drugs to white supremacist gang members in prison
Peggy Sinclair, 50, of Downing St., is accused of conspiring with inmate Matthew Peters, 22, to smuggle suboxone into New Hampshire State Prison in Concord through the mail on two occasions this year, police allege.
Peters, who lived with Sinclair prior to their arrests on drug charges in April, is a "street captain" in the Brotherhood of White Warriors, a prison-based gang also known as BOWW, police said. He allegedly is responsible for expanding the group to the streets of Concord.
Sinclair is one of Peters' girlfriends and an associate of other BOWW members still inside prison, Concord police allege. She formerly taught at Broken Ground School in Concord, where Peters was once a student.
Sinclair allegedly used the U.S. Postal Service to smuggle suboxone film concealed in envelopes inside prison. The first envelope was mailed May 17 to Peters; the second mailed to another inmate June 2, police allege.
Suboxone is a medication used for treatment of narcotic addiction by reducing symptoms of opiate dependence, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
State corrections department investigators intercepted both envelopes, police said.
At the time of the alleged mailings, Sinclair was free on personal recognizance bail related to her April 25 arrest for possessing prescription drugs without a prescription. Peters also was arrested that day on drug charges.
Sinclair turned herself in to Concord police today. She is to be arraigned today at 6th Circuit District Court in Concord on two counts each of possession of controlled drugs, conspiracy, delivery of articles to prisoners, and default of bail conditions.
Police discovered the alleged drug smuggling during an ongoing multi-agency investigation of BOWW.
