A Fairfield County man has admitted to his role in a scheme with his uncle, a career criminal, to traffic heroin and cocaine in the area.
Bridgeport resident Efrain Molina – also known as Frankie – pleaded guilty in Bridgeport federal court to one count of conspiracy to distribute, and to possess with intent to distribute, more than 100 grams of heroin and more than 500 grams of cocaine.
United States Attorney John Durham said that in December last year, the Drug Enforcement Administration learned that Efrain Molina’s uncle, Carlitos Molina, was transported heroin and cocaine to Connecticut from his South Carolina home.
The younger Molina then sold the drugs in and around Bridgeport. In January, the DEA and Bridgeport Police Department investigators arranged a controlled purchase of one kilogram of cocaine and 400 grams of heroin from the Molinas for $53,000.
