Tampa Cocaine Dealer Sentenced To Over 7 Years In Federal Prison

Tampa, Florida – U.S. District Judge Charlene E. Honeywell today sentenced Rafael Jose Gonzalez Alomar (39, Tampa) to seven years and three months in federal prison for possessing over 500 grams of cocaine with the intent to distribute it. Gonzalez Alomar had pleaded guilty on March 28, 2023.

According to court documents, in February 2022, officers conducted a series of controlled purchases of cocaine from Gonzalez Alomar at his Tampa home. On March 14, 2022, officers executed a search warrant at Gonzalez Alomar’s home and seized more than two kilograms of cocaine, two firearms, and $93,842 in cash.  Alomar Gonzalez admitted that the items belonged to him.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Charlie D. Connally.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
