CONCORD — A U.S. District Court jury has found a Campton man guilty of manufacturing marijuana on his property. Peter Apicelli, 31, will be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Joseph DiClerico on November 12. He faces a maximum term of 5 years in federal prison.
According to Acting U.S. Attorney Donald Feith, police got a tip that Apicelli was growing marijuana on land he was renting. Authorities found outdoor marijuana growing about 200 yards from Apicelli's house in September 2013. A surveillance camera then captured video of the suspect tending to the plants.
Police then obtained a search warrant for the house itself and located an indoor marijuana grow in the basement, as well as drying marijuana, packaged marijuana, scales and packaging material. Over 120 marijuana plants were seized from the house and grounds.
