Felon Who Fled Delaware Warrant Sentenced to 6 Years for Guns in Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico– Josué Marrero was sentenced to 72 months in prison for being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, announced Rosa Emilia Rodríguez-Vélez, United States Attorney for the District of Puerto Rico. Cruz-Torres had plead guilty on November 28, 2016.

United States District Court Judge Francisco A. Besosa sentenced Josue Marrero to 72 months of imprisonment, which is 26 months higher than the upper end of the applicable guideline range. Marrero fled from the state of Delaware after an arrest warrant for Controlled Substances violations was issued; he was hiding in a house in the municipality of Toa Alta, PR.

The arresting officers executing the arrest warrant found him in possession of two (2) firearms; one (1) Glock pistol, .40 caliber, loaded with nine (9) rounds of ammunition and an extra Glock magazine with nine (9) rounds of .40 caliber ammunition, in addition to one (1) Smith & Wesson pistol, 9MM caliber, loaded with sixteen (16) rounds of 9MM caliber ammunition and an extra magazine with fifteen rounds of 9MM caliber ammunition. In addition, a box with 41 rounds of .40 caliber ammunition were also seized. His term of imprisonment is followed by three years of supervised release.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Max Pérez-Bouret. The FBI was in charge of the investigation with the collaboration of the Puerto Rico Police Department.
