On Thursday, December 15, 2022, Edil Ramos, also known as “E,” 40, of Hartford, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven to 54 months of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release.
On March 28, 2022, Ramos pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl and cocaine base (“crack”), and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.
Ramos was arrested on April 8, 2020 as part of an ongoing investigation by the FBI Northern Connecticut Gang Task Force and Hartford Police Department into drug trafficking and related criminal acts committed by members and associates of the Los Solidos and Latin Kings street gangs in Hartford’s South End.
Between February and April 2020, investigators made five controlled purchases of crack cocaine and fentanyl from Ramos, a member of Los Solidos.
Most of the drug sales occurred at Ramos’ residence on Wethersfield Avenue.
On April 8, 2020 when Ramos was arrested, a search of his residence revealed a 9mm firearm, a loaded firearm magazine, approximately 1,400 bags of fentanyl, a distribution quantity of crack cocaine, and $33,062 in cash.
