November 13, 2017

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man has been sentenced in federal court to nearly six years in prison for possessing a stolen handgun, ammunition, and drugs.

Prosecutors say 36-year-old James Diaz, of Manchester is prohibited by law from possessing a firearm as a result of a prior felony conviction.

As part of a plea agreement, Diaz admitted to the possession of five other firearms and ammunition that weren’t in his apartment during a search warrant, but were later turned over to law enforcement.

Investigators found fentanyl and cocaine at his home earlier this year.
