Hamden Man Sentenced to More Than 7 Years in Federal Prison for Distributing Heroin and Crack

NOV 01 (NEW HAVEN, Conn.) – Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, New England and Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Shawn Miller, also known as “White Boy Shawn,” 32, of Hamden, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Alker Meyer in New Haven to 90 months of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release, for distributing heroin and crack cocaine.  Judge Meyer also ordered Miller to pay a $2,000 fine.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Miller and Paul Colon, also known as “Paul Cane,” operated a New Haven area narcotics distribution ring.  The investigation revealed that members of the ring took orders over a cellphone from drug customers in several shoreline communities for quantities of heroin and crack cocaine, and then delivered the drugs by car.  Miller was arrested on October 21, 2015.  On June 29, 2016, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, heroin and cocaine base (“crack cocaine”).  Colon has pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing.

This matter has been investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, FBI’s New Haven Safe Streets Task Force, the New Haven, West Haven, Milford, Hamden and other local police departments, and the Connecticut Department of Correction.
