Syracuse Man And Co-conspirators Sentenced For Distributing Fentanyl And Other Drugs

Scott Willis

Multiple men will serve time in federal prison for planning to distribute fentanyl and other drugs.

Luis Carrasquillo of Syracuse has been sentenced to six years in federal prison for his involvement in a drug conspiracy involving drug distribution, which lasted from December 2018 to January 31, 2019. He pled guilty to aiding and abetting the sale of a heroin and fentanyl mixture, as well as a separate quantity of cocaine. He was also ordered to serve a three-year term of supervised release after his sentence.

As part of his guilty plea, he revealed Waldemar Colon and Isidro De Los Santos were also involved. They planned to distribute the drugs from De Los Santo’s apartment on Gifford St. in Syracuse. Police found over 21 ounces of heroin mixed with fentanyl at De Los Santo’s residence.

Law enforcement issued a search warrant at the adjacent apartment of another involved defendant Anthony Moreno on the same day, in which they recovered 18 ounces of cocaine.

De Los Santos was sentenced to serve nine years in prison, with a five-year term of supervised release. Moreno was sentenced to around four years in prison, with five years of supervised release.

Colon is awaiting sentencing.
