35-year old, Roberto Dejesus Negrin, from Philadelphia, was sentenced to 10-years in federal prison, to be followed by 5-years supervised release, by United States District Judge, Nitza I. Quinones-Alejandro, this afternoon. According to a report from MyChesCo.com, Negrin was sentenced for charges stemming from his role as a drug trafficker and “leading supplier” for multiple neighborhoods in Kensington and other areas of the city, according to the report.

Court records show, Negrin pleaded guilty to an indictment that charged him with conspiracy to distribute heroin, back in January of 2022. Negrin was also charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver, in the same indictment. In court, Negrin admitted to being the main heroin supplier to a drug trafficking organization that controlled an open-air drug market in Kensington, throughout most of 2018. When search warrants at two locations owned by Negrin were executed in November of the same year, law enforcement officers reportedly recovered over two kilograms of heroin and other drug trafficking paraphernalia inside of the two properties.
