HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Hartford man has been sentenced to prison for trafficking heroin.

The U.S. attorney announced that 39-year-old Yoanni Suarez, also known as “Cuba,” was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Hartford to 6 ½ years in prison followed by four years of probation.

Authorities received information in August 2015 that Suarez was selling large quantities of raw heroin in Hartford. Investigators coordinated a controlled purchase of heroin from Suarez. He was arrested September 17, 2015.

He was found to be in possession of 278 grams of heroin at the time of his arrest. A search of his residence turned up an additional 986 grams of heroin.

Suarez pleaded guilty Jan. 7 to possession with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin.
