Man Charged in Operation Crystal Stiletto Case Sentenced to Jail-work Release
A man accused of being involved in a multi-jurisdictional drug ring case known as “Operation Crystal Stiletto” was sentenced to jail-work release Friday.
Christopher Tafoya, 34, had pleaded guilty to distribution of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony. He also was previously charged with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, but the district attorney dismissed that charge.
Tafoya was sentenced to six months of jail-work release, 48 hours of community service and two years of probation, according to Catherine Olguin, spokeswoman for the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office.
He was one of 22 people indicted in a drug operation that spanned northern Colorado . Those involved were charged with selling or buying heroin and methamphetamine after Longmont’s Special Enforcement Unit executed the first set of raids in May 2017.
