Branford Man Sentenced to Prison for Selling Heroin and Crack

JUN 21 (BRIDGEPORT, Conn.) – Michael J. Ferguson 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 Oretagus Eaddy, 39, of Branford, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Robert N. Chatigny in Hartford to 24 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for selling heroin and crack cocaine.

This matter stems from an investigation headed by the DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force.  According to court documents and statements made in court, between January 2013 and July 2013, the Task Force made two controlled purchases of heroin and four controlled purchases of crack cocaine from Eaddy.  Eaddy was arrested on March 3, 2014.  On March 7, 2016, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin.  Eaddy’s criminal history dates to 1993 and includes a prior federal conviction for distributing heroin, cocaine and crack.

The DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force includes members from the Bridgeport, Stamford, Stratford, Norwalk, Milford and Trumbull Police Departments, and the Connecticut State Police.
