One jailed in connection with Manchester drug ring; four being sought

CONCORD — A federal judge ordered one of the alleged heads of a Manchester drug ring jailed before trial on federal drug trafficking charges.

Alkis Nakos of 355 Arah St., Manchester, was ordered jailed after a hearing of more than two hours in U.S. District Court on Monday.

Nakos was one of 10 people arrested recently in connection with a drug ring that authorities say brought massive amounts of marijuana -- some of it carried in 50-pound duffel bags -- into the United States. Authorities are looking for another four, whom federal prosecutor Donald Feith said were "in the wind."

“We intend to attack organized drug distribution rings and to bring them to justice as best we can,” Feith said during a press conference. “If you think you can continue in the distribution of marijuana because there is some relaxation about marijuana, you have to think twice.”

Feith said an investigation into the drug ring continues.

“It is always our goal to move up the chain of command,” he said.

Out of the 10 in custody, six are from Manchester and three from Hooksett, including Kosmas Koustas, the other alleged leader of the ring.
