U.S. Marshals are searching for a New Hampshire man wanted in connection to fentanyl distribution, according to a Stratford County Sheriff’s Facebook post.

The Marshals Service is looking for Joseph Joshua George, 39, who is wanted on warrants issued by the U.S. District Court in New Hampshire in connection to bail violations and the fentanyl charge.

“George was last seen in the Somersworth, New Hampshire, and the Grey, Maine, areas where he is known to have family, friends, and associates,” the county Sheriff’s Office posted.

The Marshals Service in New Hampshire did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid. Small amounts can easily cause overdoses.

George is about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 200 pounds, according to the Marshals. He had light skin, brown hair and brown eyes. He has several distinctive tattoos, including what appears to be a child's hand print in black ink.

Authorities first issued a warrant for his arrest on Dec. 21.

Anyone with information about George can all the Strafford County Sheriff's Office at 603-742-4968.
