Fla. man convicted in oxycodone ring that struck Waterbury
NEW HAVEN — A Florida man who federal authorities say participated in a ring that trafficked prescription pain killers to Connecticut, including Waterbury, was found guilty of money laundering and narcotics crimes Tuesday.
Wilner “Castro” Castelin, 44, was one of several people, including a Waterbury man, who were indicted after the illegal oxycodone network was broken up in 2011.
A federal jury in New Haven found Castelin was paid by a trafficker to drive two Connecticut narcotics distributors around Florida. He also ferried cash — profits from drugs sales — from the Northeast back to Florida, getting paid upwards of $1,250 for each trip.
