#AceNewsReport – Mar.22: Leonard C Boyle, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that RANDY TEXIDOR, 31, of Berlin, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Stefan R. Underhill to 72 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for fentanyl distribution and drug possession offenses:

‘According to court documents and statements made in court, in 2017, the FBI’s Northern Connecticut Gang Task Force and Hartford Police Department received information that Texidor was distributing significant quantities of heroin. Between October and December 2017, investigators made eight controlled purchases of escalating quantities of heroin and/or fentanyl from Texidor’

Pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the sentencing occurred via videoconference.

The investigation revealed that Texidor and an associate used an apartment on Wadsworth Street in Hartford to process, package and store heroin. On February 13, 2018, a court-authorized search of the apartment revealed approximately 92 grams of fentanyl, 23 grams of heroin, 500 dose bags of suspected heroin/fentanyl, items used to process and package narcotics, a .380 caliber pistol, and $5,981 in cash.

Texidor has been detained since his arrest on February 13, 2018.  On October 30, 2020, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

The FBI’s Northern Connecticut Gang Task Force includes members of the Hartford Police Department, East Hartford Police Department, New Britain Police Department, West Hartford Police Department, Connecticut State Police and Connecticut Department of Correction. 

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian P. Leaming.
