Brothers Who Mailed Coke from Puerto Rico to The Bronx In FedEx Boxes Get 7 and 10 Years

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 9 – Franklyn and Fausto Almonte were up for sentencing for cocaine importation, before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis on November 9, 2023. Inner City Press was there. 

 The AUSA called their scheme "sophisticated." Defense counsel counter that it consisted of putting cocaine in FexEd boxes and covering it with coffee grounds. 

   Fausto was portrayed as having gotten his brother Franklyn, and a cousin already sentenced to five years, involved. He got 10 years, and Franklyn got seven.

 The case is US v. Almonte, 21-cr-496 (Liman)
