Former Hartford Resident Pleads Guilty to Heroin Distribution Charge
John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that NORBERTO RODRIGUEZ, also known as “Primo,” 44, formerly of Hartford, pleaded guilty today in New Haven federal court to one count of distribution of heroin.
According to court documents and statements made in court, law enforcement received information that RODRIGUEZ was selling heroin and crack cocaine in the area of Madison Street in Hartford. On June 9, 2016, investigators made a controlled purchase of 51 wax folds of heroin from RODRIGUEZ at a location on Franklin Avenue in Hartford. Laboratory analysis of the purchased substance revealed the presence of heroin, acetylfentanyl and furanyl fentanyl.
RODRIGUEZ was arrested on a federal criminal complaint on June 5, 2017. He is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Alvin W. Thompson in Hartford on April 20, 2018, at which time he faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.
RODRIGUEZ, who currently resides in Waterbury, is released on a $50,000 bond pending sentencing.
This investigation has been conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Northern Connecticut Violent Crimes Task Force, which includes members of the U.S. Marshals Service, Hartford Police Department, East Hartford Police Department, Connecticut State Police and Connecticut Department of Correction. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian P. Leaming.
