FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A Broward County man accused of smuggling synthetic heroin to South Florida - with the help from a prison inmate in Canada - has pleaded not guilty to federal drug smuggling and dealing charges.
News outlets in South Florida report that 34-year-old Aldolphe Joseph of Miramar entered his plea Tuesday in federal court. Joseph was indicted last week on 11 federal charges after prosecutors said he was part of an international ring that took online orders and shipped the drug fentanyl to addresses in Broward County.
Federal agents say they began the investigation about a year ago when they intercepted a package containing pills shipped to Joseph from Canadian prison inmate Daniel Ceron. Police searched Ceron’s cell and say they found a cellphone and a drug ledger than included Joseph’s address.
