CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - In a story June 29 about a woman who pleaded guilty to drug crimes, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the charges involved a fatal overdose. The U.S. attorney’s office says the charges did not involve a fatal overdose.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Manchester drug dealer admits selling heroin, fentanyl

Federal Drug Enforcement Administration officials say a New Hampshire woman has admitted selling heroin, fentanyl

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Federal Drug Enforcement Administration officials say a New Hampshire woman has admitted selling heroin and fentanyl to a cooperating witness in 2015.

The Citizen reports (https://bit.ly/294D1yK) Tiffany Ramos pleaded guilty in federal court to three counts of distribution of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

The DEA began investigating the Manchester woman after a confidential informant disclosed that she was selling roughly 200 to 300 grams of heroin daily.

The informant made controlled buys from Ramos on behalf of the DEA in May and June 2015. When she was arrested, police say Ramos had 128 grams of heroin hidden in her bra.

Prosecutors have recommended that Ramos be sentenced to serve 12 to 15 years in prison.
