NEW LONDON, CT —Another of the dozens arrested, charged, and now convicted, southeastern Connecticut drug traffickers has received his sentence. Royshawn ‘Boy Roy’ Allgood, 30, of New London, will spend almost six years in a federal prison for his role as a member of a southeastern Connecticut drug trafficking ring, federal prosecutors said.

Allgood’s sentence was handed down Friday Jan. 3 in a New Haven federal court room. In addition to the 71 months he’s ordered to serve, Allgood will also face five years of supervised release for his role in the trafficking ring.

The investigation included court-authorized wiretaps and controlled purchases and seizures of heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine, and firearms. Allgood and 10 co-conspirators were arrested on February 21, 2019. On March 5, 2019, a grand jury in Hartford returned an indictment charging Allgood and 23 other individuals with various offenses.

Investigators said Allgood received drugs from another member of the conspiracy and then distributed them users and street-level distributors. On June 4, 2019, Allgood pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine, 100 grams or more of heroin, and 28 grams or more of crack.

Allgood, who had been out on bond, was remanded to custody of the U.S. Marshals Service at the conclusion of the sentencing proceeding.
