CONCORD, NH—Nicholas Sheffler, 22, was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to 77 months in prison for his participation in an attempted armed home invasion of an apartment on Pleasant Street in Concord, New Hampshire, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.
On May 30, 2011, Sheffler and three other individuals traveled to New Hampshire from Pennsylvania to commit a robbery at an apartment where they expected to find drugs and money. The participants brought with them two firearms, a handgun and a shotgun, to use in the crime. Sheffler participated in two attempts to enter the apartment but was unsuccessful both times. He was arrested shortly thereafter by members of the Concord Police Department, as he tried to flee the scene.
This case was investigated by the Concord Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigations. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Seth R. Aframe.
