BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Rogelio Mueses, 26, of Buffalo, NY, who was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin, butyryl fentanyl, 4-fluoroisobutyryl fentanyl, and fentanyl, was sentenced to serve 60 months in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brendan T. Cullinane, who handled the case, stated that between January and May of 2018, the defendant conspired with another individual to distribute controlled substances. In particular, on six different dates, they sold controlled substances to an individual working with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Subsequent testing confirmed the presence of heroin, butyryl fentanyl, and 4-fluoroisobutyryl fentanyl, all of which are Schedule I controlled substances, and fentanyl, a Schedule II controlled substance. 

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Ray Donovan, New York Field Division.
