A Manchester resident was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his conviction on drug and weapon charges.
Dyshawn Moss, 42 was convicted on October 27, 2022, following a four-day trial before U.S. District Judge Michael A. Shipp on five charges: possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
Judge Shipp imposed the sentence in Trenton federal court.
According to documents in this case and evidence at trial, on May 24, 2019, Moss was arrested while standing outside of his Manchester apartment building.
Inside his apartment, Moss was found to be in possession of over 1,000 grams of fentanyl, over 1,300 grams of heroin, and over 2,600 grams of cocaine; drug-packaging materials; over $150,000 in cash; and a 9mm Taurus handgun loaded with 10 rounds of ammunition.
In addition to the prison term, Judge Shipp sentenced Moss to 10 years of supervised release.
