Blue Springs Man Indicted for Fentanyl Conspiracy, Illegal Firearm

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A Blue Springs, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for his role in a conspiracy to distribute fentanyl.

Alan J. Flamenco, also known as “Pablo,” 23, was charged in an eight-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo.

Today’s indictment alleges that Flamenco participated in a conspiracy to distribute fentanyl in Jackson County, Mo., from May 5 to Nov. 21, 2022. Flamenco is also charged with four counts of distributing fentanyl and one count of possessing fentanyl with the intent to distribute.

The federal indictment also charges Flamenco with one count of possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime. Flamenco allegedly was in possession of a Glock 9mm semi-automatic handgun on May 5, 2022.

The charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon Gibson, who is a cross-designated prosecutor from the Missouri Attorney General’s office as part of the Safer Streets Initiative to combat violent crime. It was investigated by the Jackson County Drug Task Force and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
