ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Timothy Granison, 43, of Rochester, NY, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine before U.S. District Court Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr. The charge carries a minimum penalty of five years in prison, a maximum of 40 years and a $5,000,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew T. McGrath, who is handling the case, stated that Granison was a member of a drug trafficking organization led by Jason Siplin that distributed large quantities of cocaine and crack cocaine out of a Glenwood Avenue drug house. Over the course of the conspiracy, Granison regularly obtained bulk quantities of cocaine from Jason Siplin, which he then sold to his own customers. On May 19, 2021, investigators intercepted telephone calls between Granison and co-conspirator Dkeidron Dublin, during which the two discussed Granison resupplying Dublin with cocaine sometime that afternoon. At approximately 3:23 p.m., surveillance officers observed Granison pull up to Dublin’s Birch Crescent residence in Rochester. Dublin came out of the residence and got into Granison’s vehicle. Investigators then surrounded the vehicle and took Granison and Dublin into custody. During the execution of search warrants on the vehicle and Dublin’s residence, 31 grams of cocaine and $1,241.00 in cash was recovered.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Barry Chase, the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of Interim Chief David Smith, the Greater Rochester Area Narcotics Enforcement Team, and Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Scarpino.     
Sentencing is scheduled for September 6, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. before Judge Geraci.
