A Miami man was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute over 45 kilograms of narcotics, including heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and morphine. 50-year-old Sauro D. Estevez Figueredo previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin, five kilograms or more of cocaine, 400 grams or more of fentanyl, and morphine.
He was originally arrested with 23-year-old Edwin Alamo Jr., 33-year-old Emmanuel Gonzalez, 54-year-old Alberto Mora, and 39-year-old Porfirio Peralta-Nunez in February 2016. All five defendants have since pleaded guilty to their roles in the drug distribution conspiracy.
Figueredo admitted that he collected narcotics and transported them via tractor-trailer to New Jersey. He also admitted that Mora handed out a suitcase with 22 kilograms of heroin and afterwards, another conspirator took two bags containing fentanyl, morphine and heroin from the tractor-trailer.
He said that there were two additional bags on the tractor-trailer – one that contained 10 kilograms of fentanyl and one that contained 10 kilograms of cocaine – that would have been provided to other conspirators if not for law enforcement’s intervention.
