A Buffalo man who was busted in a narcotics sting operation last May pleaded guilty Tuesday to third-degree attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Michael Jordan, 31, of Buffalo faces up to eight years in prison when he is sentenced April 17 by Erie County Court Judge Michael Pietruzka.
Jordan was arrested May 1, 2017, during a sting operation conducted by the Erie County Sheriff's Office. He was selling drugs in a parking lot as detectives watched the transaction. When detectives approached Jordan, he attempted to flee in his vehicle but was blocked in by deputies. More than a 1/2-ounce of cocaine was found in Jordan’s pants.
Jordan has a history of narcotics-related convictions, according to the Erie County District Attorney's office.
