HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A New Haven man faces up to 40 years in prison for conspiring to distribute and possess crack cocaine.

Aaron “S-K” Moore, 29, has pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy and will sentenced Oct. 31. Police said the FBI New Haven Safe Streets Task Force investigated drug distribution and related gang activity in the Hill neighborhood of New Haven, and found the “South Side Bloods” were distributing large amounts of crack cocaine.

Moore and eight co-defendants were indicted on crack cocaine-related charges in September 2012, and Moore was arrested in June 2014. He has been in custody since then, prosecutors said. All the other defendants have also pleaded guilty.
