% 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 JESUS MANUEL VALLE, also known as “LoLo,” 24, of East Haven, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey A. Meyer in New Haven to 60 months of imprisonment, followed by four years of supervised release, for narcotics distribution and firearm possession offenses.

According to court documents and statements made in court, law enforcement identified Valle’s residence on Charter Oak Avenue in East Haven as a hub of narcotics distribution activity.  On February 5, 2020, investigators searched the residence and seized approximately 17 grams of heroin packaged for distribution, 35 grams of loose heroin, 17 grams of packaged cocaine, nine grams of packaged crack cocaine, items used to process and package narcotics for street sale, and a loaded Ruger .44 magnum handgun.

On September 2, 2020, Valle pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin, cocaine and cocaine base (“crack”), and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Valle who is released on a $250,000 bond, is required to report to prison on June 25, 2021.

This matter was investigated by the DEA Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, the FBI Bridgeport Safe Streets Task Force and the East Haven Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Vizcarrondo.
