SOUTHINGTON - A New Britain man has pleaded guilty to selling heroin to a confidential informant working on behalf of Southington police.

Robert Drouin Jr., 25, accepted a plea deal Tuesday in Bristol Superior Court that will include serving 18 months in prison and three years’ probation. He is expected to be sentenced on May 10.

Drouin, who is free on $225,000 bond, pleaded guilty to one count of sale of narcotics. In exchange, two additional counts will not be pursued.

According to court officials, Drouin sold heroin to the informant in May 2015 after Southington police launched an investigation into his drug trafficking. State prosecutors described it as a “controlled buy” that was supervised by police.

The warrants for Drouin’s arrest were sealed after his arrest.
