Stamford Man Sentenced to 77 Months in Federal Prison for Trafficking Cocaine and Marijuana
John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that CARL HUBBARD, 35, of Stamford, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven to 77 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for trafficking cocaine and marijuana.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in May 2017, the Drug Enforcement Administration and Stamford Police Department made one controlled purchase of cocaine from HUBBARD, and two controlled purchases of crack cocaine from an associate of HUBBARD after HUBBARD had arranged the two sales. A subsequent court-authorized wiretap investigation confirmed that HUBBARD was receiving marijuana from William Reyes of Stamford, and cocaine from other sources, and was distributing the drugs to individuals in Fairfield County.
HUBBARD and Reyes were arrested on July 26, 2017. On that date, investigators seized $2,933 in cash from HUBBARD’s person and $9,450 in cash that HUBBARD kept at a family member’s residence. Investigators also seized approximately 18 grams of cocaine and approximately 658 grams of marijuana from an individual who HUBBARD had given the drugs for safekeeping. In addition, a court-authorized search of Reyes’ Stamford residence revealed approximately 18 kilograms of marijuana, paraphernalia associated with narcotics distribution, and $71,004 in cash, and a search of a residence in Lagrangeville, N.Y., that Reyes and another individual used to grow, process and distribute marijuana, revealed 140 marijuana plants and related equipment.
HUBBARD has been detained since his arrest. On May 30, 2018, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine and a quantity of marijuana.
Reyes pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana and, on March 29, 2018, was sentenced to 41 months of imprisonment.
This matter has been investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Stamford Police Department and New York State Police. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Anthony E. Kaplan and Sarala V. Nagala.
