             According to court documents and statements made in court, as a result of an ongoing drug trafficking investigation, agents and task force officers with the Drug Enforcement Administration learned that on March 12, 2018, Chaney intended to travel from New Hampshire to a location in Lawrence, Massachusetts to purchase 200 grams of a controlled substance.  Agents conducted surveillance in the area of the transaction and observed Chaney’s vehicle arrive.  They then followed the vehicle toward New Hampshire and passed the license plate and their observations on to the New Hampshire State Police.   A trooper observed the vehicle and stopped the vehicle for traffic violations. The trooper subsequently used his drug detection dog who alerted to Chaney’s vehicle. A search warrant subsequently was executed on the vehicle, which resulted in the discovery of approximately 225 grams of fentanyl.
