CENTRAL FALLS – Napoleon Andrade, a local man already doing 10 years in federal prison on weapons, money-laundering and theft charges, was sentenced to an additional 31 months Tuesday for his role in a home invasion targeting an associate of the Gambino crime family in Connecticut.
During a sentencing hearing in Providence, U.S. District Judge John McConnell ordered Andrade to serve 63 months in all. But McConnell structured the penalty so that 32 months overlap Andrade’s current term and the balance kicks in when it’s completed, U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha said.
Andrade, 32, was the target of an unrelated, multi-agency probe of drug trafficking when investigators secretly recorded him talking about his involvement in home invasions in Connecticut and New York in March 2010.
