Mass. man gets prison time for hitting sheriff's cruiser after drug buy
Jonathan Delgado, 30, pleaded guilty on Friday to seven counts of violating the controlled drug act and charges of criminal mischief, resisting arrest and disobeying a police officer.
Assistant County Attorney Jerome Blanchard said that a confidential informant tipped investigators that Delgado was selling crack cocaine and heroin. Undercover deputies set up controlled purchases of the two drugs between Nov. 22 and Dec. 11.
Sheriff’s deputies had Delgado’s vehicle boxed in, but he had to be forcibly removed from his vehicle to be taken into custody, according to the sheriff’s department. The two cruisers sustained minor damage. Delgado had three grams of heroin and three grams of crack cocaine on him at the time of his arrest, the sheriff’s department said.
Delgado will also have to pay restitution to the sheriff’s department and undergo any drug and alcohol treatment or counseling ordered by corrections officials.
