A Concord woman has been sentenced to nearly six years in federal prison for drug trafficking.

Felicia Jordan, 28, sold fentanyl to undercover Concord police officers on several occasions in March 2016, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Police executed a search warrant at Jordan’s residence that May and seized almost 100 grams of the drug.

Jordan pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Concord in September 2017 to one count each of possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute and conspiracy to distribute and possess fentanyl with intent to distribute. She was sentenced this week to 70 months in prison.

“As the large number of fatal fentanyl-related overdoses in our state show, fentanyl is a deadly drug,” said Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley. “The law enforcement community in New Hampshire is working hard each day to stop the flow of this deadly drug into our state. While those suffering from addiction need access to treatment, those who choose to distribute fentanyl in the Granite State will be prosecuted aggressively.”

Concord police investigated the case against Jordan, and charges were ultimately brought by federal prosecutors.
