Norwich Drug Dealer Sentenced to 5 Years in Federal Prison

Leonard C Boyle, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that ROBERT GRANT HALL, also known as “Chevy,” 41, of Norwich, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford to 60 months of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release, for distributing cocaine, crack and heroin.

According to court documents and statements made in court, in 2018, the FBI, Norwich Police Department and other law enforcement agencies began investigating a narcotics trafficking organization that was operating in southeastern Connecticut.  The investigation, which included court-authorized wiretaps and controlled purchases of crack, revealed that Hall and others were distributing heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine to drug users and other street-level dealers. 

On March 5, 2019, a grand jury returned an indictment charging Hall and 12 other individuals with narcotics trafficking offenses.  On July 29, 2021, Hall pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine and 28 grams or more of cocaine base (“crack”).

Hall has been detained in federal custody since March 27, 2019.

This investigation has been conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Connecticut State Police and Norwich, Town of Groton and Waterford Police Departments, with the assistance of the FBI’s Baltimore Field Office, Baltimore Police Department and Delaware State Police.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Natasha M. Freismuth Marc H. Silverman through the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) Program.  OCDETF identifies, disrupts and dismantles drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs and transnational criminal organizations through a prosecutor-led and intelligence-driven approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.  Additional information about the OCDETF Program can be found at https://www.justice.gov/OCDETF.
