Man faces 40 years in prison for selling Fentanyl in Salem
SALEM - A Lawrence man is facing up to 40 years in prison for selling Fentanyl to officers during an investigation.
Euris Daniel Paulino Guerrero, 24, a citizen of the Dominican Republic living in Lawrence, faces 40 years in prison and fines up to $5 million for pleading guilty to conspiracy to sell Fentanyl. He faces an additional 20 years in prison and fines of up to $1 million for each count of selling Fentanyl.
During the spring and summer of 2015, Guerrero sold heroin, Fentanyl, and Oxycodone four times to undercover officers. Lab results confirmed that over 140 grams of the substance sold contained Fentanyl and additional quantities remain to be tested.
Search warrants were executed at three residences in Lawrence as part of the investigation. Police located over 400 grams of Fentanyl, an instrument used to compress drugs into 10 gram quantitis for sale, blenders, and other packaging materials at one location.
