Middletown Cocaine Dealer Pleads Guilty

Mark R. Trouville, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration in New England and Kevin J. O'Connor, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that CARLOS ANGLERO, age 45, of 106C Thomas Street, Middletown, Connecticut, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute and distribution of more than 500 grams of cocaine. United States District Judge Christopher F. Droney accepted ANGLERO's plea of guilty yesterday in Hartford federal court.

According to documents filed with the Court and according to statements made in court, on February 5, 2004, ANGLERO was arrested in Middletown when he and another alleged co-conspirator were about to transfer one kilogram of cocaine to a customer. ANGLERO was charged in state court in Middletown at that time. On April 1, 2004, a federal grand jury sitting in Hartford returned a seven-count Indictment charging ANGLERO and six other individuals with several narcotics-related offenses. ANGLERO has been in custody since his arrest.

In pleading guilty, ANGLERO has admitted that between September 2003 and February 2004, he was involved in a narcotics distribution conspiracy. ANGLERO admitted that he traveled to Chicago, Illinois, New Jersey, and Springfield, Virginia to purchase and transport multiple kilograms of cocaine. ANGLERO also admitted that he managed and supervised two of his relatives, with whom he shared his residence in Middletown, in a conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute and to distribute a mixture and substance containing cocaine. Specifically, ANGLERO admitted that he directed his relatives to package and deliver quantities of cocaine and collect money, and that they conducted this narcotics operation from their Middletown residence. In total, ANGLERO has admitted that he was responsible for selling between five and 15 kilograms of cocaine.

As part of his plea agreement, ANGLERO will forfeit to the Government assets from bank accounts he controlled. The value of these assets is approximately $34,000.

Judge Droney scheduled sentencing for January 21, 2004. ANGLERO faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 40 years, a five-year mandatory minimum term of imprisonment, and a fine of up to $2,000,000.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force comprised of federal agents and members of several local police departments.
