8 years for dealing heroin

(WTNH)- A Hartford man has been sentenced to 100 months in prison on Tuesday Sept 9. for his role in a narcotics trafficking ring.

Antonio Sanchez, also known as “Cano,” 41, sold heroin in the drug ring. The investigation specifically targeted a heroin and cocaine trafficking organization headed by Angel Rosa, also known as “Little” and “Daddy,” and his cousin, Angel Rosa, also known as “Mo Betta” and “Fab.” Little supervised the drug trafficking ring, which included several other family members, through fear and intimidation. Mo Betta managed the daily operations of the organization, facilitated the delivery and transportation of large quantities of heroin, and supervised numerous drug sellers who distributed heroin and other narcotics in the Zion Street area. At times, Little and Mo Betta used, or threatened to use, violence to ensure the success of the organization.

Sanchez, who is Little’s stepbrother, sold heroin on a daily basis from 584 Zion Street. As a result of this investigation, 21 individuals were charged with various federal offenses, and law enforcement officers seized narcotics, one firearm, approximately $230,000 in cash, eight vehicles and jewelry. Sanchez has been detained since his arrest on April 11, 2013. On April 25, 2014, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, 100 grams or more of heroin.
