Pa. Man Pleads Guilty To Meth Charge
CHAUTAUQUA — A Corry, Pa., man has pleaded guilty to possessing with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. The plea was entered before U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo.
Chautauqua County sheriff’s deputies stopped a vehicle March 9, 2019, in the town of Chautauqua for crossing the center line in the road. During the stop, deputies reported finding a smoking pipe in the front seat along with “two large chunks of suspected methamphetamine” and a loaded handgun.
In addition, deputies recovered $10,210 in U.S. currency, suspected ecstasy pills, packaging materials, a digital scale, drug paraphernalia, Xanax pills, MDMA pills, Suboxone strips, and two hypodermic needles, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Monday in a news release.
The charge caries a minimum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $10 million fine.
