A Pembroke man recently indicted for selling methamphetamine out of his studio apartment has reached a plea deal with county prosecutors.

Thomas McEneany, 31, is scheduled to appear in Merrimack County Superior Court in Concord on Nov. 1 for a plea and sentencing hearing. The terms of the plea deal have not yet been publicly disclosed.

McEneany faces five counts of possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, three counts of sale of a controlled drug and possession of a controlled drug.

Investigators allege McEneany was in possession of methamphetamine, fentanyl and amphetamines during a traffic stop on June 28 on Buck Street in Pembroke. McEneany, who was a passenger in a Nissan Xterra SUV, was wanted on several pending warrants.

With the driver’s permission, police said they searched the car and took a backpack, which McEneany held between his feet. In addition to roughly 100 baggies used to package drugs, police said the backpack contained a Sig Sauer handgun, pills, a digital scale and a grinder with marijuana residue.

Police executed the traffic stop not far from where they had been conducting surveillance of McEneany’s studio apartment. The state attorney general’s drug task force had partnered with local police to execute undercover buys at the residence and later issued warrants charging him with methamphetamine sales.

Two separate drug deals were carried out by a confidential police informant and recorded through one-party intercepts, and a third deal was executed by the same informant and an undercover officer. During one of the buys, McEneany was recorded saying he had the best “meth around” and that it was a “well-known fact,” according to a sworn police affidavit.

Police began watching McEneany’s Dearborn Road residence after multiple neighbors reported an increase in suspicious activity at the home.

McEneany is being held on cash bail pending the resolution of the case.
