Cocaine Trafficker, Omrys Delgado Sentenced to More Than 7 Years in Federal Prison
(STL.News) Leonard C Boyle, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that OMRYS DELGADO, 33, of Windsor, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford to 87 months of imprisonment, followed by four years of supervised release, for trafficking cocaine.
According to court documents and statements made in court, this matter stems from an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Hartford Task Force and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service into Delgado and others, who were receiving shipments of cocaine from Puerto Rico and California, and distributing the drug in and around Hartford. The investigation revealed that a U.S. Postal Service letter carrier was facilitating the shipment of parcels containing kilograms of cocaine through the USPS to addresses that were on his delivery route in Hartford. The letter carrier distributed cocaine to his own drug customers, and also delivered parcels to Delgado and other cocaine traffickers in the Hartford area.
Delgado was arrested on May 21, 2019. On June 4, 2019, a grand jury in Hartford returned an indictment Delgado and 18 co-defendants with conspiracy to distribute cocaine and related offenses.
