Defendant, Kristopher Sullivan Pleads Guilty for His Role in Red Lake Heroin Conspiracy

United States Attorney Erica H. MacDonald today announced the guilty plea of KRISTOPHER SULLIVAN, a/k/a “Blood Money,” 24, for his role in a heroin distribution conspiracy that resulted in the shooting deaths of two individuals. SULLIVAN entered his guilty plea before Judge Wilhelmina M. Wright in U.S. District Court in St. Paul, Minnesota. SULLIVAN’s co-defendants BRYAN BOARDMAN, a/k/a “Boon,” 25, and FRANKLIN JACKSON, a/k/a “Frankie,” 23, previously pleaded guilty to one count each of conspiracy to distribute heroin.

According to the defendants’ guilty pleas and documents filed in court, between October 1, 2018, and October 21, 2018, SULLIVAN conspired with BOARDMAN and JACKSON to distribute heroin on the Red Lake Indian Reservation. In the early morning hours of October 21, 2018, SULLIVAN, BOARDMAN, and JACKSON met in a trailer home on the Red Lake Indian Reservation belonging to JACKSON’s girlfriend. The three defendants made preparations to sell heroin later that day, including contacting potential customers to let them know that heroin was available for sale at the trailer home. The defendants’ drug trafficking activities were interrupted at approximately 6:30 a.m. that morning when three armed, masked men broke into the trailer home in an apparent armed robbery. BOARDMAN drew a 9 millimeter pistol and fired eight shots, killing two of the intruders. The third intruder was wounded in the leg by the gunfire and fled from the scene.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI Headwaters Safe Trails Task Force and the Red Lake Tribal Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jeffrey S. Paulsen and Julie E. Allyn are prosecuting the case.
