Two Maryland men were charged with trafficking thousands of fentanyl pills into Connecticut, the Justice Department said Friday.
The U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut and the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England announced that a federal grand jury in Hartford returned an indictment Thursday charging 34-year-old Oscar Flores of Mount Rainier, and 25-year-old Severo Alelar of Hyattsville with fentanyl trafficking offenses.
Court documents and statements made in court Sept. 8 alleged Flores, Alelar and others arrived in an SUV at a meeting location in Wethersfield to sell approximately 15,000 fentanyl pills to an undercover DEA agent.
After Flores showed the undercover agent a sample of the pills, the agent said he needed to travel to another location to pick up the money.
