NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WLNE) — Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn III said that a 26-year-old New Bedford narcotics trafficker was sentenced to serve two-and-a-half to four years in prison.

Andre Dorsainvil pled guilty to trafficking crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, and unlawful possession of ammunition.

Quinn said that New Bedford police saw someone purchase narcotics from Dorsainvil at his home on Purchase Street in November 2020.

The defendant fled from officers on foot when officers approached him, and discarded a white sock tied in a knot.

The sock contained 38 grams of fentanyl and 81 grams of crack cocaine.

A search warrant of Dorsainvil’s home also found $5,5000 in cash, drug dealing packaging materials, and several rounds of ammunition.
