Acting U.S. Attorney William D. Weinreb announced Friday a member of the Latin Kings gang was sentenced to two years in prison for distribution of crack cocaine.
Thirty-one-year-old Virgilio Adornoa, aka “Trigga” and “Goyo,” previously pleaded guilty to distributing crack cocaine in the New Bedford area. Adorno and associates were observed utilizing the Bonneau Court, known as “The Pit” for illegal activities, including drug trafficking in March 2017.
Adorno was eventually caught selling crack cocaine to a witness who was cooperating with law enforcement. A search warrant was executed at Adorno’s residence, where officers recovered additional crack cocaine.
