The head of the drug trafficking ring pleads guilty

PROVIDENCE, R. I. – A man who authorities say was the head of a major fentanyl and cocaine trafficking ring in New England has pleaded guilty in federal court.

The Providence Journal reports that the 25-year-old Ramon Delossantos entered the plea Thursday in a Providence courthouse. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and $20 million in fines.

The eight-month investigation resulted in 26 arrests. Investigators seized 23 kilograms of suspected fentanyl, 11 kilograms of cocaine, 11 kilograms of marijuana and 2 pounds of ‘magic mushrooms’.

Delossantos, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, acknowledged that he likely would be deported as a result of the plea.
