Waterbury Heroin Trafficker, Keith Jordan Sentenced to 10 Years in Federal Prison
(STL.News) John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that KEITH JORDAN, also known as “Knowledge,” 52, of Waterbury, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall to 120 months of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release, for trafficking heroin.
Pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the court proceeding occurred via videoconference.
According to court documents and statements made in court, this matter stems from a joint investigation headed by the DEA New Haven Task Force and the Waterbury and Naugatuck Police Departments. The investigation, which included the use of court-authorized wiretaps, physical surveillance and controlled purchases of narcotics, revealed that Jordan was receiving large quantities of heroin from various suppliers and selling the drug to other drug distributors and street-level customers. Jordan also purchased and distributed cocaine.
On March 13, 2019, a grand jury in Hartford returned an indictment charging Jordan and 28 other individuals with various offenses related to the distribution of heroin, fentanyl, cocaine and crack cocaine.
Jordan and several codefendants were arrested on March 20, 2019.
