A drug dealer who was busted with hundreds of grams of fentanyl during a traffic stop in Connecticut with his child in the backseat has admitted to trafficking drugs in the area.

Juan “Money” Hazard, of Cranston, Rhode Island, pleaded guilty this week in New Haven federal court to one count of possession with intent to distribute 40 or more grams of fentanyl.

In April last year, Hazard agreed to meet someone in Ledyard to perform a drug deal.

On April 26 last year, investigators stopped Hazard on his way to the meet, and the subsequent investigation found that Hazard was in possession of a wooden box that contained three shrink-wrapped packages containing a total of 338 grams of fentanyl in the back of the vehicle. Hazard’s young child was also in the back seat at the time of the offense.

Hazard has been detained since his arrest on May 4 this year. He is scheduled to be sentenced in court on Dec. 10, when he will face a term of between five and 40 years in prison.
