After a federal and state investigation, a serial drug dealer from North Stratford with a slew of past felony convictions will serve a minimum of 13 years in New Hampshire State Prison after pleading guilty to three counts of subsequent offense drug sales involving 3 pounds of methamphetamine sold across Granite State four counties. Since 2016, Jeffrey Renaud, 55, who was most recently arrested after selling more than 5 ounces of methamphetamine to an undercover officer in Plymouth in June, has had 13 felony drug cases against him in Coos, Grafton, Hillsborough, and Rockingham counties, including a flurry of drug sales in 2022 alone, as well as previous drug convictions in Vermont dating back to 2005.In a statement issued Friday, officials from the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office, NHAG Drug Task Force, and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, all of which were involved in the investigation, broke down the sentence. After pleading guilty to the three counts of drug sales, prosecutors dismissed all remaining charges.
