Man pleads guilty to meth-trafficking charge

October 25, 2017

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man has pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

Court documents say postal inspectors intercepted a parcel intended for delivery for Robert Golden, of Laconia, last year. They found 56 grams of methamphetamine. They removed most of the drugs, re-wrapped the parcel and notified the 37-year-old Golden it was available for him to pick up at the post office. He was arrested after taking it.

Golden told authorities he knew what was in the package, that it had been sent from California, and that he intended to distribute the drug in New Hampshire. He said he had received four to six similar packages from California.

Golden, who pleaded guilty Wednesday, is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 31, 2018.
