Today a federal grand jury in New Haven returned an indictment charging Gerardo Munez-Irizarry A.K.A. “Indio,” 43, of Meriden, Connecticut with possession with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl.
Between June and August 2021, law enforcement made multiple controlled purchases of fentanyl from Nunez-Irizarry. In November 2021, Nunez-Irizarry agreed to sell a 50-gram quantity of fentanyl. On November 18, 2021, investigators stopped Nunez-Irizarry’s car in Meriden as he drove to an arranged location to complete the transaction and seized approximately 50 grams of fentanyl. He was arrested on state charges at that time.
Nunez-Irizarry was arrested on a federal criminal complaint on March 24, 2022.
