ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Lattrell Terry, 25, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of possessing with intent to distribute fentanyl, and possession of a firearm with an altered or obliterated serial number, was sentenced to 57 months in prison by U.S. District Court Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew T. McGrath, who handled the case, stated that during a routine search, members of the Monroe County Probation Department located drugs and drug packaging material in the defendant’s Rexford Street residence. As a result, probation officers reached out to Rochester Police officers who obtained a search warrant for the residence. During the search, officers recovered approximately 474 baggies of fentanyl and 92 baggies of heroin, all packaged for re-sale. Additionally, officers recovered a loaded semi-automatic pistol with a defaced serial number that had been reported stolen out of the State of Florida. Cocaine and marijuana were also located throughout the residence, as well as $3,316 in cash. 

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Monroe County Department of Probation, under the direction of Chief Probation Officer Larry Mattle, the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of Chief La’Ron Singletary, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge John B. Devito, New York Field Division.
