Windsor Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for
Using Telephone to Order Cocaine

AUG 16 - Steven W. Derr, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England and David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ALECK GLADNEY, 51, of Ashley Road, Windsor, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Mark R. Kravitz in New Haven to 12 months and one day of imprisonment, followed by one year of supervised release, for using a telephone to order cocaine from a Hartford-area drug trafficker. GLADNEY also was ordered to pay a fine in the amount of $3000. On February 12, 2010, GLADNEY pleaded guilty to one count of use of a telephone to facilitate the commission of a narcotics felony.

This matter stems from “Operation All In,” a long-term Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force investigation into the distribution of cocaine and crack cocaine in Hartford County. A total of 33 individuals have been charged as a result of the investigation, which has also included the seizure of approximately three kilograms of cocaine, one-half kilogram of crack cocaine, 12 firearms, and approximately $800,000 in cash. The Government is seeking the forfeiture of several properties, vehicles and other items that were used during the course of the narcotics trafficking activity.

According to court documents and statements made in court, GLADNEY regularly purchased cocaine from Peter Maylor of Newington. On March 24, 2009, GLADNEY was intercepted over a wiretap of Maylor’s phone ordering cocaine, some of which he intended to provide to others.
Maylor has pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine. He awaits sentencing.

This matter was investigated by a Drug Enforcement Administration and the Hartford, New Britain, Manchester, East Hartford, Bloomfield, Bristol, Wethersfield, Windsor and Windsor Locks Police Departments. Additional assistance has been provided by the East Central Narcotics Task Force, which includes members from the Manchester, South Windsor, Glastonbury, and Vernon Police Departments; the Capital Region Emergency Services Team (CREST), and the Hartford Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT).
