Haitian National Charged with International Narcotics Conspiracy, Narcotics Distribution, and Firearms Offense – Department of Justice

Richard G. Frohling, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, Robert J. Bell, Special Agent in Charge, United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Chicago Field Division, and Renita D. Foster, Special Agent in Charge, DEA Caribbean Field Division announced the expulsion of Jean Eliobert Jasme (a/k/a “ED-1,” “Eddy One,” “Tio Loco”), age 60, from Haiti based on an indictment returned in the Eastern District of Wisconsin.  Jasme  was  arraigned today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephen C. Dries in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  At today’s hearing, Judge Dries ordered that Jasme be detained pending trial. 
On September 28, 2021, a grand jury in the Eastern District of Wisconsin returned an indictment against Jasme alleging one count of international drug trafficking, one substantive count of international drug trafficking, and one count of carrying a firearm during and in relation to drug trafficking. According to the indictment, from approximately February 2019 through September 28, 2021, Jasme conspired with others to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine intending, knowing, or having reasonable cause to believe the cocaine would be unlawfully imported into the United States; on or about October 28, 2020, Jasme distributed five kilograms or more of cocaine intending, knowing, or having reasonable cause to believe the cocaine would be unlawfully imported into the United States; and on or about October 28, 2020, Jasme carried a firearm during and in relation to the aforementioned drug-trafficking offenses.
An indictment is merely an allegation and a defendant is presumed innocent until proved guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
The DEA Port-au-Prince Country Office and the DEA Milwaukee Field Office investigated this case.  The Justice Department’s Office of International Affairs and the Haitian National Government, including the Haitian Ministry of Justice, the Haitian National Police and La Brigade de Lutte contre le Trafic de Stupéfiants (BLTS), provided substantial assistance in this matter.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Robert J. Brady, Jr. and Gail J. Hoffman of the Eastern District of Wisconsin are prosecuting the case.
