Buffalo man pleads guilty as fentanyl dealer

A Buffalo man pleaded guilty this week before U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny to dealing fentanyl.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank T. Pimentel said Eddie Lee Watson, 64, sold fentanyl patches on four occasions last year, and on two of those dates, he also sold oxymorphone. Watson’s plea is the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
