Buffalo man pleads guilty to drug trafficking

A Buffalo man has pleaded guilty to cross-country drug trafficking.

Rashawn Dewer, 37, of Buffalo, pleaded guilty Friday before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine, according to  James P. Kennedy Jr., acting U.S. attorney for the western district.

Dewer is accused of organizing a scheme that transported cocaine and cash proceeds to Buffalo from Texas, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Wei Xiang, who is handling the case.

Authorities linked Dewer to multiple seizures totaling at least $1.4 million in cash proceeds from the sale of cocaine,  the U.S. attorney's office said.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 24 before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford.
