According to court documents and statements made in court, on May 12, 2016, Hartford Police, who were patrolling the Barbour Street area of Hartford in response to multiple incidents of shots fired the previous day, attempted to stop MAPP’s car as it departed MAPP’s Taylor Drive residence.  Officers had observed that the car did not have a front license plate.  The car fled at a high rate of speed.  Later that evening, officers located the car, a search of which revealed a 9mm pistol with a high capacity magazine loaded with 17 rounds of ammunition.  A search of MAPP’s residence also revealed approximately 28 grams of cocaine, narcotics packaging materials, a .40 caliber bullet, and approximately $2,800 in cash.

MAPP’s criminal history includes felony convictions.

MAPP has been detained since his arrest on May 13, 2016.  On June 26, 2017, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon, and one count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Northern Connecticut Violent Crimes Task Force and the Hartford Police Department.  The Task Force includes members of the Hartford Police Department, East Hartford Police Department, Connecticut State Police and Connecticut Department of Correction.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian P.
