MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to eight to 20 years after pleading guilty to selling and possessing heroin and cocaine.

Police say their investigation, which started in January, resulted in the seizure of more than 150 grams of heroin from 34-year-old Denard Debruhl of Merrimack.

Debruhl was sentenced Wednesday.

The state Attorney General’s Drug Task Force and the Merrimack Police Department investigated.

“The problem of heroin abuse has been growing steadily and is one of the greatest challenges facing law enforcement here in New Hampshire and nationwide,” Attorney General Joseph Foster said in a statement. “While a solution to this problem is multi-faceted and must involve education and treatment, an important part of the solution will continue to be identifying, arresting, prosecuting and incarcerating heroin dealers. Our Drug Task Force remains committed to this goal.”
