Bridgeport Resident Pleads Guilty to Ecstasy Trafficking Charge

FEB 14 (NEW HAVEN, 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 Collin Fletcher, 52, last residing in Bridgeport, pleaded guilty before Chief U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven to one count of conspiracy to distribute, and to possess with intent to distribute, MDA and MDMA.

MDA (Methylenedioxyamphetamine) is an analogue of MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine), and they are both commonly known as “ecstasy”.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Fletcher conspired with others to sell ecstasy to customers in Connecticut, New York and elsewhere.  On October 27, 2016, and again on November 1, 2016, investigators made two controlled purchases of ecstasy from Fletcher.  Fletcher was arrested on November 18, 2016, after he attempted to sell approximately 10,000 capsules of ecstasy to an undercover officer.  The capsules had a combined weight of approximately 923 grams of MDA.

Chief Judge Hall scheduled sentencing for May 12, 2017, at which time Fletcher faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.  Fletcher, a citizen of Jamaica, has been detained since his arrest.

This matter is being investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s New Haven Tactical Diversion Squad, which includes officers from the Bristol, Greenwich, Hamden, Milford, New Haven, Shelton, Vernon and Wilton Police Departments.
