NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WLNE) — The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday that a 44-year-old man has been sentenced to serve 10 to 12 years in state prison for trafficking fentanyl.

District Attorney Tom Quinn said Kenny Gonzalez was arrested by New Bedford police in September 2022 while in possession of about 600 grams of fentanyl.

Police said they searched his apartment and found a lockbox and safe containing fentanyl in his children’s bedroom and other drug paraphernalia, including several digital scales.

Prior to this, Quinn said Gonzalez served time in a New York prison for first degree manslaughter.
