WILMINGTON, Del. – David C. Weiss, U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, announced today that Carlos Juan Camacho Quinones, 36, of Newark, was sentenced to 46 months imprisonment for possession with intent to distribute cocaine. U.S. District Court Judge Richard G. Andrews pronounced the sentence.

According to court documents and statements made in open court, the Defendant was arrested in March 2021 after he was surveilled for several months receiving and transporting U.S. mail packages that contained suspected cocaine. Quinones pled guilty in October 2021.

U.S. Attorney Weiss stated, “Trafficking in large quantities of drugs threatens the safety and security of our communities. The sentence imposed is necessary to keep our communities safe and deter others from participating in illegal drug trafficking. Our office, along with our law enforcement partners, is committed to fully investigating and prosecuting these serious drug crimes.”

“Mr. Quinones trafficked significant amounts of dangerous narcotics via mail packages for distribution, posing a danger to citizens," stated Baltimore FBI Special Agent in Charge, Thomas J. Sobocinski.  "Through our robust law enforcement partnership with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in Delaware, the FBI remains committed to disrupting the flow of deadly drugs into our communities, and to hold drug traffickers accountable.”   

Assistant U.S. Attorney Alexander P. Ibrahim prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the FBI.
