CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for participating in a drug-trafficking conspiracy in New Hampshire.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says court documents show Juan Garcia, who also goes by several other names, participated in a conspiracy to sell fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine. The FBI started investigating him in Nashua and in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

Garcia, who said he was from Puerto Rico but actually was from the Dominican Republic, pleaded guilty in June.
