CSAO: New Britain Man Sentenced on Narcotics Charges

New Britain Man Sentenced on Narcotics Charges

A New Britain man was sentenced to six years in prison followed by six years of special parole for his conviction on two counts of Possession of Narcotics with Intent to Sell.

Robert Swain, age 45, pled guilty in New Britain Superior Court to the two counts on December 3, 2012, and was subsequently sentenced by Judge Hillary B. Strackbein in connection with two incidents investigated by New Britain police.

The first incident involved the sale of cocaine to a confidential informant which was recorded on surveillance video.

In the second case, the New Britain Police Special Services Unit executed a search and seizure warrant at the bodega where Swain worked and found him in possession of 25.2 grams of cocaine, 67 oxycodone pills, and $1,020 in cash, including bills that were marked by police as "buy money" and used in the first incident.

The case was prosecuted by Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Brett J. Salafia.
