More Than a Pound of PCP Seized During Federal Drug Interdiction Investigation

ALBUQUERQUE – This morning a U.S. Magistrate Judge sitting in Albuquerque, N.M., found probable cause to support a criminal complaint charging Taylor Overton Foster, 28, of White Plains, N.Y., with a phencyclidine (PCP) trafficking offense. Foster was released pending trial to a halfway house and will be under pretrial supervision and other conditions of release.

 

Foster was arrested on Feb. 8, 2017, and was charged in a criminal complaint after the DEA and New Mexico State Police (NMSP) seized approximately 508.9 grams (1.12 pounds) of PCP from him during an interdiction investigation at the Amtrak Train Station in Albuquerque.

 

If convicted, Foster faces a statutory minimum penalty of ten years and a maximum of life in prison. Charges in criminal complaints are merely accusations and defendants are presumed innocent unless found guilty in a court of law.

 

This case was investigated by the Albuquerque office of the DEA and the NMSP. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eva Fontanez is prosecuting the case.
