City man gets 5 years for crack possession with intent to distribute

March 1, 2013

WOONSOCKET – A city man was sentenced to five years in federal prison Thursday for possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute the drug.
Felix Reyes, 20, was also ordered to serve five years’ supervised release upon the completion of his prison.
He appeared for sentencing before U.S. District Court Chief Judge Mary Lisi in Providence after pleading guilty to one count of possession crack with the intent to distribute on Dec. 2, 2012.
According to information presented to the court, Reyes was arrested by Woonsocket police in March 2012 following a brief foot chase, after an officer on routine patrol noticed Reyes acting in a suspicious manner. As the officer approached Reyes he fled, discarding a small package which police quickly retrieved.
The package contained nearly 39 grams of crack cocaine. Reyes was arrested following a brief struggle.
According to information presented to the court, Reyes was previously convicted in the state courts on a drug charge, and is currently awaiting trial on drug, assault and weapons charges.
Reyes has been detained since his arrest in March 2012.
