Spring Hill, FL Man Sentenced To More Than Eight Years In Federal Prison For Conspiring To Sell Fentanyl

Below is an official statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida regarding the sentencing of a man who pled guilty to conspiring to sell fentanyl.

Tampa, FL – U.S. District Judge Mary S. Scriven has sentenced Luis Irizarry-Santiago, a/k/a “Bullet” (33, Spring Hill), to eight years and four months in federal prison for conspiring to distribute fentanyl, para-fluorofentanyl, and cocaine. Irizarry-Santiago was also ordered to forfeit $28,889 in cash that was seized from his residence. Irizarry-Santiago entered a guilty plea on June 26, 2023.

According to court records, Irizarry-Santiago was indicted after a coconspirator, Janel Genereux, sold a gram of fentanyl and 0.2 grams of cocaine to a confidential source on one occasion, and almost 7 grams of a fentanyl analogue to another coconspirator on a separate occasion. A subsequent search of Irizarry-Santiago’s residence revealed drug paraphernalia and bulk cash.

Genereux previously pleaded guilty for her role in this case. She was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Pasco Sheriff’s Office as part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt, and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking and money laundering organizations and those primarily responsible for the nation’s drug supply. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Dan Baeza. The forfeiture is being handled by Assistant United State Attorney James Muench.
