Burlington man sentenced to 3 years in prison

BURLINGTON — A Burlington man was sentenced today to serve three years in prison after his convictions for possession with intent to distribute heroin and for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to court records, Ramzi Kori, 21, will also serve a three-year term of supervised release after his incarceration and may face additional incarceration for a probation violation that is pending in Saratoga County, New York.

On July 6, 2021, law enforcement conducted a traffic stop on a Land Rover, seeking to arrest the registered owner of the vehicle who had an outstanding federal arrest warrant.

Kori was determined to be the sole occupant of the vehicle.

A Burlington police K-9 alerted to the vehicle, resulting in a search of the Land Rover.

Police say in bags located on the front passenger seat, agents found 6,850 bags of fentanyl-laced heroin, a loaded 9 mm Sig Sauer handgun, and $2,500 cash.

An examination of Kori’s finances determined that at the time of his arrest, Kori had over $50,000 in various financial accounts.

Government witnesses reported that Kori had been dealing heroin in the Burlington area since 2020.
