Brookfield Man Pleads Guilty To Oxycodone Distribution Charge
Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that KYLE M. LUTRUS, 27, of Brookfield, pleaded guilty today before United States Magistrate Judge Thomas P. Smith in Hartford to one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with the intent to distribute oxycodone.
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 393 pills were purchased from LUTRUS during the course of the investigation.
LUTRUS is scheduled to be sentenced by United States District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant on August 1, 2013, at which time LUTRUS faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years and a fine of up to $1 million. LUTRUS also has agreed to forfeit $60,000 and his 2005 Honda Accord.
LUTRUS was arrested on December 20, 2012. He is currently released on a $200,000 bond.
This matter is being investigated by the DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force and the Brookfield Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys David X. Sullivan and Michael E. Runowicz.
