Man Admits to Killing Ex-girlfriend’s 2-year-old Daughter With Phone Charger (1)

Leading a large-scale drug conspiracy in the Saginaw-Bay area, Ricardo Delgado, II was found guilty by a federal jury of several drug and weapons offenses, including drug conspiracy, possession of multiple machineguns, possession with intent to distribute kilogram quantities of cocaine and fentanyl, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Delgado, 51, was found guilty of conspiracy to possess and distribute at least five kilograms of cocaine, possession and distribution of at least five kilograms of cocaine, possession and distribution of at least 400 grams of fentanyl, possession of a machinegun in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, criminal possession of a firearm, possession of an unregistered silencer, and use of a communication facility to commit a drug offense.

According to court records, Delgado was a part of an extensive drug trafficking scheme that included bringing in multiple kilograms of cocaine and fentanyl from Mexico to be distributed throughout the Saginaw-Bay region.

Through the use of a wiretap approved by the court, FBI agents discovered that Delgado was ordering his subordinate to take retribution for stealing his drugs.

But the scheme was foiled by the authorities. In addition, once Delgado was taken into custody, police recovered 12 guns, including two silencers and two machine guns, 2 kilograms of fentanyl, and more than $200,000 in cash from the 51-year-old’s home.

Delgado could get a mandatory minimum sentence of 55 years and a maximum term of life in prison if he is found guilty.
