A convicted male adult from River Grove was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for his role in transporting fentanyl and other drugs to the United States from China and selling it on the streets of Chicago.

Nestor Burgos, 32, of River Grove, pleaded guilty earlier this year to federal drug and firearm charges. Burgos admitted dealing narcotics and possessing two handguns and a silencer in furtherance of his drug trafficking activities.

U.S. District Judge Sara L. Ellis imposed the 15-year sentence Monday December 2, 2019 in federal court in Chicago.

The sentence was announced by John R. Lausch, Jr., United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois; James M. Gibbons, Special Agent-in-Charge of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations in Chicago; and Craig Goldberg, Inspector-in-Charge of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in Chicago.

“Fentanyl is a powerfully lethal opioid which defendant brought to the streets of Chicago,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Terry M. Kinney argued in the government’s sentencing memorandum. “Words cannot begin to describe the horrific damage that fentanyl has unleashed upon American society.”

“Criminals like Burgos are profiting from deadly addictions, and the snares of these addictions entrap more people every day,” said HSI Special Agent-in-Charge Gibbons. “Let this sentence serve as a reminder that HSI will work tirelessly with its law enforcement and judicial partners to bring to justice those who supply our streets with fentanyl and other deadly synthetic opioids.”

Burgos admitted in a plea agreement that in the summer of 2017 he worked with Rolando Estrada to transport fentanyl, fentanyl analogues, heroin, and cocaine via mail from China to Chicago. Estrada arranged to have the substances shipped to the Chicago area from a Chinese chemical company, according to a criminal complaint filed against him in 2016. At the time, Estrada, formerly of Elmwood Park, was residing in Mexico and had ordered the drugs via the internet. After selling the fentanyl and other drugs in the Chicago area, Burgos used bitcoins to pay Estrada a portion of the illicit proceeds.

Estrada was also charged as part of the investigation. He was arrested in April 2018 in Querètaro, Mexico. After being extradited to Chicago, Estrada pleaded guilty to federal drug charges earlier this month before U.S. District Judge Ronald A. Guzman. Estrada admitted in a plea declaration that he trafficked cocaine and a fentanyl analogue in the Chicago area in 2015 and 2016. Judge Guzman set Estrada’s sentencing for Feb. 19, 2020, at 10:00 a.m.
