Hartford man pleads guilty to federal drug charges

Hartford

Hartford, Conn (WTNH)- A Hartford man is facing up to forty years behind bars after pleading guilty of federal drug charges.

Federal authorities say 39 year old Yoanni Suarez, who is also known as ‘Cuba’, has pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin.

Prosecutors say Suarez had about 1250 grams of heroin in his truck and a residence when he was arrested last September. Suarez is scheduled to be sentenced in April. He faces a mandatory prison sentence of five years, but could be sentenced to as many as forty years behind bars.

The arrest was the result of an investigation by an F-B-I task force that included the Hartford Police department, Connecticut State police, East Hartford police department and the Department of Correction.
