Dorchester Man Arrested for Distributing Fentanyl

Two children – including a preschooler – allegedly met the buyer at a Roslindale apartment and led him to the opioids

BOSTON – A Dorchester man was arrested yesterday and charged in federal court today with distributing fentanyl.

Snolbert Ramirez-Sandoval, 21, was charged with one count of distribution of fentanyl. He appeared in federal court today and was ordered detained pending a detention hearing.

According to the complaint unsealed yesterday, Ramirez-Sandoval sold fentanyl on July 26, 2018, by directing the buyer to go to an apartment in Roslindale. It is alleged that once there, two young boys (one between 11-and-14-years-old and another between 3-and-6-years-old) led the buyer to the room in which Ramirez-Sandoval had left the fentanyl. The buyer paid the older child for the substance and left.

It is further alleged that on Aug. 2, 2018, the buyer returned to the Roslindale apartment to purchase additional fentanyl from Ramirez-Sandoval. Again, the buyer was greeted by the two children, who informed the buyer that Ramirez-Sandoval was not home but would be back shortly. Approximately 30 minutes later, Ramirez-Sandoval and another individual arrived at the apartment and sold the buyer the fentanyl.

The charge of distribution of fentanyl carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, at least three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $1 million. Ramirez-Sandoval will be subject to deportation proceedings. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Brian D. Boyle, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, New England Division, and Colonel Kerry A. Gilpin, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig Estes of Lelling’s Narcotics and Money Laundering Unit is prosecuting the case.

The details contained in the complaint are allegations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

And in another case a Lawrence man was arrested yesterday and charged in federal court in Boston with distributing fentanyl.

According to the complaint unsealed yesterday, in May 2018, federal agents identified Pimentel as a fentanyl distributor in the Lawrence area. During the course of this investigation, agents seized over 160 grams of fentanyl from the defendant.
