Judge Gives 15 Year Sentence to Man Who Flooded Weld County with Drugs
Published on April 26, 2019
GREELEY, Colo. (Weld County D.A.) – A drug dealer who flooded Weld County with methamphetamine and fentanyl will spend more than a decade behind bars.
Weld District Judge Thomas Quammen Wednesday sentenced 21-year-old Carlos Sedano to 15 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections.
During two separate occasions, undercover investigators from the Weld County Drug Task Force last May bought a large quantity of drugs from Sedano.
During the two transactions, Sedano sold investigators a total of almost a pound-and-a-half of meth and nearly 200 fentanyl pills.
In March, Sedano plead guilty to Distribution of a Controlled Substance – Methamphetamine, a class one drug felony. As part of a plea agreement, the parties stipulated a sentence range of 10 to 15 years in DOC.
“This wasn’t a case where the defendant was merely in possession of these potent drugs,” Weld Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wrenn said. “This was an extremely large operation he ran where he flooded this community with extremely potent and deadly substances for a profit.”
Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wrenn prosecuted this case.
