An Epsom woman was sentenced Monday to eight years in federal prison on drug-related charges.

Nicole Roskos, 30, previously pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Concord to one count each of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances and using and carrying a firearm to further a drug trafficking crime.

Roskos will be on supervised release for three years after she serves her sentence.

As part of the investigation, police seized four firearms, ammunition, more than 511 grams of fentanyl and approximately $24,000 from Roskos’s residence in September 2017.

“The deadly combination of fentanyl trafficking and firearms pose a substantial threat to public safety,” U.S. Attorney Scott Murray said in a statement. “We will continue to work with all of our law enforcement partners to identify and prosecute those who distribute deadly drugs such as fentanyl. It should be noted, that drug dealers who choose to use guns to further their unlawful activities subject themselves to longer prison terms when convicted.”
