Wilmington Man Sentenced to 10 Years in Federal Prison for Dealing Fentanyl

BOSTON – A Wilmington man was sentenced Friday, Sept. 7, 2018, in federal court in Boston for dealing fentanyl.

Bryan Moran, 35, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani to 10 years in prison and eight years of supervised release. In May 2018, Moran pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl.

In June 2016, Moran was arrested and charged after investigators seized approximately 80 grams of fentanyl from a storage unit in North Reading. Due to a 2003 conviction in federal court for heroin conspiracy, Moran faced a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Brian D. Boyle, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, New England Division; Wilmington Police Chief Michael Begonis; and North Reading Police Chief Michael Murphy made the announcement. Valuable assistance was provided by the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Katherine Ferguson of Lelling’s Narcotics and Money Laundering Unit prosecuted the case.
