CONCORD, NH—Jimmy F. Ambrosi, 32, of Lowell, Massachusetts, was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to 57 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and five counts of distribution of cocaine base (crack) and cocaine, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.
The Hampton Police Department and the New Hampshire Drug Task Force conducted an investigation of the sale of illegal drugs in the Hampton Beach area, targeting a cocaine trafficking and distribution network in which Jimmy F. Ambrosi was identified as a main target. From June 2011 through March 2012, a confidential informant made three purchases of crack cocaine from Ambrosi’s co-defendant, Andrew Wojtowicz. The confidential informant introduced an undercover police officer to Wojtowicz, who introduced the undercover police officer to Ambrosi. Twenty-four additional purchases of illegal controlled substances, including cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, and oxycodone were made from Ambrosi, Wojtowicz, and their associates. Ambrosi sold the undercover police officer illegal controlled substances on five occasions in New Hampshire and once in Massachusetts.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Debra M. Walsh.
