Groton man gets six years in prison for intent to sell heroin

A Groton man was sentenced Monday to six years in prison after pleading guilty in March to one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin.

Jose “Fallo” Davila, 33, will also face four years of supervised release after his prison term ends, according to John Durham, the United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut.

According to court documents and statements, the Groton Town Police Department and the Regional Community Enhancement Task Force found that Davila was selling heroin from a camper located on a property on South Road. On May 23, 2016, police obtained a search warrant for the camper and seized more than 100 grams of heroin, items used to process and package heroin for street sale, a .380 caliber pistol with an obliterated serial number, and 80 rounds of ammunition. He was then arrested and has been held in jail since.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Davila has at least four prior convictions for offenses such as threatening, sale of illegal drugs, and risk of injury to a child. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patricia Stolfi Collins.
