A Laconia man was sentenced to 50 months in federal prison for methamphetamine trafficking, U.S. Attorney Scott Murray announced Friday.

Peter Dauphin, 45, sold “ice” methamphetamine to an buyer cooperating with law enforcement officers on five separate occasions in April and May 2017, according to court documents and statements made in court.

All of the transactions took place at Dauphin’s automotive repair shop in Gilford, officials said.

“Mr. Dauphin took advantage of the addiction problem that many people are struggling with here in the Granite State,” Harold Shaw, special agent from the FBI Boston Division, said in a press release. “Targeting dangerous drug dealers like him will continue to be the collective focus of the FBI’s Safe Streets Gang Task Force because no one in our community should have to live in fear of the activity that drug trafficking brings to their neighborhoods.”

Dauphin’s case was investigated by the police departments of Gilford and Laconia, in conjunction with FBI New Hampshire Safe Streets Gang Task Force. The Task Force comprises the FBI; the New Hampshire State Police; New Hampshire Probation and Parole; and the police departments of Hudson, Manchester and Nashua. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Shane Kelbley.
