ALBANY, NEW YORK - Timothy Schleede, age 30, of Lake Katrine, New York, was sentenced today to serve 70 months in prison for distributing fentanyl in Ulster County.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman; Acting Special Agent in Charge Timothy Foley of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), New York Division; Ulster County Sheriff Juan Figueroa, whose office leads the Ulster Regional Gang Enforcement Narcotics Team (URGENT); and Ulster County District Attorney David Clegg.

As part of his guilty plea, Schleede admitted that on August 26, 2020, he distributed a fentanyl mixture in glassine envelopes to another person in a mall parking lot in Ulster, New York.  Schleede was arrested later the same day after selling more glassine envelopes containing the same fentanyl mixture in a hotel parking lot in Ulster.  Law enforcement searched Schleede’s hotel room and storage locker, and recovered approximately 8,000 additional glassine envelopes, which contained fentanyl and heroin

United States District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino also imposed a 4-year term of supervised release, which will start after Schleede is released from prison

This case was investigated by URGENT and the DEA, with assistance provided by the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Emmet O’Hanlon.
