Guilty Plea To Crack Distribution Charge For Monroe Man
APR 27 - BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent-in-Charge of the DEA for New England and Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Dwight Jarvis, 28, of Monroe, Connecticut waived his right to be indicted and pled guilty before U.S. District Judge Victor A. Bolden in Bridgeport to one count of distribution of cocaine (“crack”).
This matter stems from an investigation by the DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force and Milford Police Department.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on October 27, 2016, a search of Jarvis’ Monroe residence revealed approximately 29 grams of cocaine, approximately 25 grams of crack cocaine, 70 dose bags of heroin, and other items used to process and package narcotics for street sale.
Jarvis was arrested on a federal criminal complaint on December 16, 2016. He is released on a $100,000 bond pending sentencing, which is not yet scheduled. The offense carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.
The DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force includes members from the Bridgeport, Stamford, Stratford, Norwalk and Milford Police Departments, and the Connecticut State Police. The Monroe Police Department assisted the investigation.
