Long Island Man Pleads Guilty to Heroin Distribution Conspiracies
Defendant Supplied Heroin to a Drug Trafficking Organization Based in Jamaica, Queens
Earlier today, in federal court in Brooklyn, Stanley Fuller pleaded guilty to two heroin distribution conspiracies before United States Magistrate Judge Lois Bloom. The conspiracies, charged in two indictments, detail Fuller’s role as a supplier of substantial quantities of heroin to co-conspirators who trafficked the drugs in Jamaica, Queens. When sentenced, Fuller faces a statutory maximum of life in prison for the first conspiracy, and up to 20 years’ imprisonment for the second conspiracy.
Richard P. Donoghue, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Angel M. Melendez, Special Agent-in-Charge, Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations, New York, Ray Donovan, Special Agent-in-Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration, New York Division, and James P. O’Neill, Commissioner, New York City Police Department, announced the guilty plea.
Between April 2013 and July 2015, law enforcement agents intercepted telephone communications during which Fuller discussed the quality of heroin being sold under the brand names “Sweet Dreams,” “Pepsi” and “Coca Cola.” In May 2017, following his arrest and indictment for heroin distribution conspiracy, Fuller was released on bond and placed on home confinement. Notwithstanding, Fuller continued supplying heroin to street-level dealers for distribution. Law enforcement agents again intercepted numerous telephone communications during which Fuller discussed heroin being sold under the brand names “9 & 1/2” and “Tom & Jerry.” In January 2019, Fuller was charged in a second indictment with heroin distribution conspiracy while on pre-trial release.
Fuller is the last of 12 defendants in the first indictment to plead guilty, nine of whom have been sentenced.
The government’s case is being prosecuted by the Office’s International Narcotics and Money Laundering Section. Assistant United States Attorneys Marcia M. Henry, Alicia N. Washington, Erin Reid, Jonathan Algor, Michael Robotti and Lauren Elbert are in charge of the prosecution.
