For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Connecticut

Vanessa Roberts Avery, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that FELIX OSORIO, JR., 27, of Plainville, waived his right to be indicted and pleaded guilty today before U.S. District Judge Kari A. Dooley in Bridgeport to conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Osorio was arrested on June 7, 2022, after a court-authorized search of his residence on Basswood Street in Plainville revealed packaged fentanyl and loose fentanyl totaling more than 500 grams, a quarter-kilogram hydraulic press, and other items used in the processing and packaging of narcotics for street sale.

Judge Dooley scheduled sentencing for November 20, at which time Osorio faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.  Osorio is released on a $100,000 bond pending sentencing.

This matter has been investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Tactical Diversion Squad, with assistance from the New Britain Police Department.  The Tactical Diversion Squad included officers from the Bristol, East Windsor, Hamden, New Britain, West Haven, Newington, Manchester, Glastonbury, and Watertown Police Departments.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Tara E. Levens and John T. Pierpont, Jr.
