Middletown man sentenced to 10 years for drug trafficking

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) - Carlos Roman, also known as "Frizz", was sentenced to 10 years in prison for involvement in a central Connecticut cocaine and crack cocaine trafficking ring. 

The DEA New Haven task force headed an investigation that included court-authorized wiretaps, controlled purchases of crack-cocaine, and seizures of cocaine and cash revenue. 

The investigation revealed the Roman, a 38-year-old Middletown resident, was operating the drug trafficking ring while a co-conspirator was incarcerated. 

On April 11, 2017, Roman was arrested. At the time of the arrest, police say Roman was in possession of 500 grams of cocaine. After searching his residence, police also found a handgun that he illegally possessed. 

Approximately three months after the arrest, Roman and 10 other individuals were indicted by a New Haven grand jury on various offenses related to drug trafficking. 

On January 18, 2018, Roman pleaded guilty to multiple charges including conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
