Lake Worth Resident Sentenced to 10 Years for Distributing Heroin and Fentanyl

Benjamin G. Greenberg, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, Adolphus P.  Wright, Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Ric Bradshaw, Sheriff of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO), announced that Wilfredo Roy Madrigal, a/k/a “Fredo,” a/k/a “Wolfman,” 34, of Palm Beach County, was sentenced yesterday, by United States District Judge Robin L. Rosenberg, to 10 years in prison, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release, after previously pleading guilty to possession with intent to distribute heroin. 

According to the court record, on March 6, 2018, Madrigal sold heroin to an individual outside of his hotel room in Lake Worth, Palm Beach County, Florida.  On March 8, 2018, law enforcement executed a search warrant on Madrigal’s hotel room and seized a number of controlled substances including, heroin, marijuana, Adderall, and Methoxyacetyl Fentanyl pills (which were made to look like Oxycodone pills), as well as, plastic baggies and digital scales.  

Mr. Greenberg commended the investigative efforts of the DEA and PBSO, for their assistance in this matter. This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer C. Nucci.

This case is the result of the ongoing efforts by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) a partnership that brings together the combined expertise and unique abilities of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt, dismantle and prosecute members of drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering organizations and enterprises.
