Anti-Violence Initiative Pays Dividends in Hartford

HARTFORD, Conn, (WTNH) – A comprehensive initiative to reduce gun violence in Connecticut’s major cities is paying dividends.  Carlos Sanchez was sentenced to 28 months in prison Wednesday.  According to court documents and statements made in court, in September 2015, the FBI’s Northern Connecticut Violent Crimes Task Force and Hartford Police Department initiated an investigation into narcotics distribution, firearms trafficking and acts of violence carried out by members and associates Los Solidos in Hartford’s South End.  The investigation, which included the use of court-authorized wiretaps and controlled purchases of heroin, crack cocaine and firearms, resulted in federal charges against approximately 30 individuals.
