Man sent to prison for planning drug robbery

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)  –  A Bridgeport man, who federal authorities say planned to conduct an armed robbery at a narcotics stash house, has been sentenced to more than 7 years in jail.

The United States Attorney for Connecticut says a federal judge in New Haven has sentenced 35 year old Carlos Colon to 90 months in prison followed by five years of supervised released.

According to the U.S. Attorney for Connecticut, the plot was uncovered during “Operation Sampson”, a joint initiative between the ATF and Bridgeport and New Haven Police that targeted violent criminals, illegal firearm possession and firearm trafficking.
