BOSCAWEN Man pleads guilty to selling painkillers

A Boscawen man arrested with nearly 2,000 oxycodone pills in 2016 plead guilty to possession with intent to distribute in Concord’s U.S. District Court.

Patrick Brooks Jr. of Boscawen was arrested last year after a Concord police detective making undercover purchases discovered Brooks had been selling oxycodone for 11 years, according to a police statement.

Police executed a search warrant at Brooks’s home on July 20 and discovered the pills as well as $20,000 in cash. The money recovered from Brooks’s home included currency the detective used to buy oxycodone in one of the undercover transactions.

Brooks is scheduled to be sentenced on May 30.
