David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Miguel Alamo, 36, of East Hartford, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Stefan R. Underhill in Bridgeport to 96 months of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release, for trafficking cocaine.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on April 28, 2010, as part of an undercover operation, investigators seized 15 kilograms of cocaine that were intended for delivery to Alamo. Alamo was arrested the following day. A subsequent search of Alamo’s East Hartford residence revealed more than 12 kilograms of cocaine, drug packaging and processing materials, and $27,840 in cash.

Alamo has been detained since his arrest on April 29, 2010. On June 1, 2011, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess and distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine.

This matter was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, with the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Homeland Security Investigations.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Geoffrey M. Stone.
