Buffalo, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Anthony Dloniak, 40, of Dunkirk, NY, who was convicted of possession with intent to distribute U-47700, was sentenced to serve 78 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brendan T. Cullinane, who handled the case, stated that beginning in May of 2017, law enforcement officers began recovering packages addressed to the defendant from China and the Netherlands, all of which contained either U-47700 or MDMA, both of which are Schedule I controlled substances. On September 7, 2017, officers executed a search warrant at the Dloniak’s residence and recovered controlled substances and items used in the distribution of controlled substances, including: a quantity of U-47700; scales; a vacuum sealing system; packaging materials; a ledger; a book entitled “How to Manufacture Methamphetamine;” and, $12,650 in U.S. currency.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin Kelly, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Investigations, New York Field Office, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Jeffrey Ebersole.
