New Haven Man Sentenced to 2 Years in Federal Prison for Distributing Heroin and Crack

Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that SEAN LONDON, 23, of New Haven, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Alker Meyer in New Haven to 24 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for distributing heroin and crack cocaine.

This matter stems from an investigation into a New Haven-area heroin and crack distribution ring headed by Shawn Miller, also known as “White Boy Shawn” and Paul Colon, also known as “Paul Cane.”  According to court documents and statements made in court, the investigation revealed that members of the ring took orders over a cellphone from drug customers in several shoreline communities for quantities of heroin and crack cocaine, and then delivered the drugs by car.  LONDON was the primary user of the organization’s cellphone from April 16 to May 4, 2015, and sold heroin and crack to numerous customers during that time period.

LONDON was arrested on June 10, 2015.  On June 24, 2016, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, heroin and cocaine base (“crack cocaine”).

Miller and Colon have pleaded guilty and await sentencing.

This matter has been investigated by the FBI’s New Haven Safe Streets Task Force in cooperation with the Drug Enforcement Administration and the New Haven, West Haven, Milford, Hamden and other local police departments, and the Connecticut Department of Correction.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys H. Gordon Hall and Jennifer R. Laraia.
