A federal jury has found 27-year-old Uriel Fajardo-Albarran guilty of one count of conspiring to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and three counts of distribution of methamphetamine. He faces a minimum mandatory penalty of 10 years and up to life in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
According to evidence presented during the three-day trial, Fajardo-Albarran received large amounts of methamphetamine from sources in Mexico, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia. He then transported the methamphetamine to Florida where he used lower-level dealers to distribute multiple kilograms of the substance each week for approximately two years. Fajardo-Albarran organized the network of distribution after taking over for a supplier who had previously been convicted and sentenced to federal prison.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Gainesville Resident Office, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, the Lake City Police Department, the Florida Highway Patrol, the Unified Drug Enforcement Strike Team, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. It is being prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida.
