AUG 01 (BRIDGEPORT, Conn.) John J. Arvanitis, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England and Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Kyle M. Lutrus, 28, of Brookfield, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford to 27 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for distributing oxycodone. Lutrus was also ordered to pay a $2,000 fine, and to forfeit $60,000 and a 2005 Honda Accord, which he used to facilitate his drug trafficking activity.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in late 2011, Brookfield Police received information that Lutrus was involved in the illegal distribution of oxycodone. Between February 2012 and April 2012, Lutrus made multiple sales of oxycodone to an individual working with law enforcement and an undercover DEA Task Force officer. A total of 343 pills were purchased from Lutrus during the course of the investigation.
Lutrus was arrested on December 20, 2012. On May 15, 2013, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with the intent to distribute oxycodone.
This matter was investigated by the DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force and the Brookfield Police Department.
