% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 Leonard C Boyle, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that JORDAN FLYTHE, also known as “T,” 28, of New Britain, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford to 36 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for distributing fentanyl and crack cocaine.

According to court documents and statements made in court, the FBI’s Northern Connecticut Gang Task Force and Hartford Police Department identified Flythe as a narcotics distributor who supplied various gang members in the Hartford’s South End.  On February 3, 2020, after investigators conducted a controlled purchase of approximately six grams of crack cocaine from Flythe in exchange for $300 in Hartford, Hartford Police stopped Flythe’s vehicle and arrested Flythe on state narcotics charges.  A search of Flythe’s vehicle and person at the time of his arrest revealed approximately 20 grams of crack, a digital scale and $3,450 in cash.    

Shortly after Flythe was released on bond in his state case, investigators made controlled purchases from Flythe of approximately 12 grams of crack on February 12, 100 sleeves of fentanyl and approximately eight grams of crack on February 17, and approximately 7 grams of crack on February 25.

On February 26, 2020, investigators conducted a court-authorized search of a Hartford apartment Flythe used to store, process and package narcotics and seized more than 30 grams of fentanyl, 18 grams of crack, nine ounces of marijuana and $5,582 in cash.  A search of Flythe’s New Britain residence revealed approximately 52 grams of heroin and $3,357 in cash.

Flythe has been detained since his federal arrest on February 26, 2020.  On October 9, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute, and distribution of, fentanyl and cocaine base (“crack”).

The FBI’s Northern Connecticut Gang Task Force includes members of the Hartford Police Department, East Hartford Police Department, West Hartford Police Department, New Britain Police Department, Connecticut State Police and Connecticut Department of Correction.  This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian P. Leaming.
