By Tiffany Williams –

On Tuesday at the United States District Court in Boston, United States District Court Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton sentenced Miguel Angel Fajardo, 32, of Lawrence eight years in prison and two years of supervised release.

In October 2022, Fajardo pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute 400 grams or more of fentanyl. 

In March 2022, law enforcement executed a court authorized search warrant at Fajardo’s apartment and seized approximately 7.3 kilograms worth of fentanyl pills, an industrial pill press and “M” and “30” pill stamps consistent with markings on pharmaceutical-grade Oxycodone pills. 

Approximately 1.4 kilograms of fentanyl powder, two individual finger presses, 50 rounds of .40 caliber ammunition concealed in a microwave, four kilograms of cutting agent and two air purifying respirators – which are commonly used when working with fentanyl powder were also found. 

Additionally, two one-kilogram pill press machines and another large pill press were found.
