Merrimack man pleads guilty to drug dealing

NASHUA — A Merrimack man, Denard Debruhl, 34, pleaded guilty in Hillsborough County Superior Court South to three counts of selling heroin, two counts of possessing heroin with intent to sell, and one count of possessing cocaine.

The negotiated plea carries a sentence of 8 to 20 years in the New Hampshire State Prison, but if Debruhl fails to remain on good behavior after his release, the state could seek to impose suspended sentences that are part of the plea agreement.

Debruhl was living at 908 Columbus Circle, an industrial park where he had being operating a lawn business at one point, when he sold the drugs and was arrested. At the time of his arrest in January, Debruhl was described as a significant dealer of heroin in the Merrimack area.

He was arrested after selling heroin to Merrimack police and members of the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force. Police seized 150 grams of heroin, valued at $12,000, when he was arrested.

He was living at the industrial park with a woman and two children.

The investigation was conducted by the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force and the Merrimack Police Department and the plea entered Wednesday was announced by Merrimack Police Chief Mark E. Doyle and New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster.
