GAITHERSBURG, MD. (WJZ) — A 34-year-old Gaithersburg man was sentenced to 150 months– or 12.5 years– in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release for a conspiracy to distribute fentanyl, heroin and cocaine and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to his plea agreement, from at least January 2017 through February 2017, Leandro Acevedo Lozada, aka “Dro” conspired with Bradley Wade Seabolt and others to distribute fentanyl, heroin and cocaine through street-level drug dealers.

Although Lozada said he was not certain of the exact chemicals in the opioids he sold to Seabolt and others, he said he knew that the substance was bright white in color and very strong.

Because of this, Lozada said he suspected that it was fentanyl, and because the opioids were so strong, he used powdered sugar to dilute them.

On January 11, 2017, EMS responded to a victim’s home in Montgomery County where they were found unresponsive. The victim later died. They had ingested fentanyl distributed by Seabolt, who got it from Lozada.
