After being arrested nearly two years ago in a drug trafficking investigation, a Coos County woman will serve several years in New Hampshire State Prison after pleading guilty this week to conspiring to sell fentanyl. Amber Flagg, 34, of North Stratford, pleaded guilty to one special class felony count of conspiracy to sell fentanyl. She was given a prison sentence of 4 to 8 years, with one year suspended from the minimum sentence if she completes all recommended drug treatment programs while in prison. On Jan. 28, 2021, Flagg assisted Russell Adjutant, 32, of North Stratford, in selling 30 grams of fentanyl to a confidential informant in Colebrook. Flagg and Adjutant were stopped by NHSP in Stark, where Flagg was found to be in possession of 236 grams, or half a pound, of fentanyl.
