Tampa, Florida– Senior U.S. District Judge Susan C. Bucklew today sentenced Anthony Sanchez (25, Bradenton) to 11 years in federal prison for possessing carfentanil, a Schedule II controlled substance, with the intent to distribute it, and for possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime. He pleaded guilty on August 4, 2017.
According to court documents, Sanchez sold a stolen Sig-Sauer .9mm caliber pistol and ammunition to an undercover agent at the Desoto Square Mall, in Bradenton. He also sold the agent 10.85 grams of carfentanil, while possessing a loaded .22 caliber revolver.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Frank Murray.
This is another case prosecuted as part of the Department of Justice’s “Project Safe Neighborhoods” Program (PSN) — a nationwide, crime reduction strategy aimed at decreasing violent crime in communities. It involves a comprehensive approach to public safety — one that includes investigating and prosecuting crimes, along with prevention and reentry efforts. In the Middle District of Florida, Acting U.S. Attorney W. Stephen Muldrow coordinates PSN efforts in cooperation with various federal, state, and local law enforcement officials.
