Waterbury PCP Dealer Sentenced to More Than 5 Years in Federal Prison

NOV 06 (WATERBURY, Conn.) - Michael J. Ferguson, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England and Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Shaun James, 45, of Waterbury, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Robert N. Chatigny in Hartford to 65 months of imprisonment, followed by four years of supervised release, for distributing PCP.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on December 14, 2012, officers with the DEA’s New Haven Task Force conducted a court-authorized search of James’s apartment on Pearl Lake Road in Waterbury, where they found several containers of liquid PCP and materials used to package the drug for distribution.  Officers also recovered a loaded .44 caliber revolver, an additional box of ammunition and approximately $28,500 in cash.  James was arrested on that date.
James has been detained since his arrest.  On May 28, 2014, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession with the intent to distribute 100 grams or more of Phencyclidine (“PCP”).
The seized cash and firearm were forfeited.
This case was investigated by the DEA’s New Haven Task Force with the assistance of the Waterbury Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael E. Runowicz.
