A Buffalo man admitted in U.S. District Court that he conspired with others to sell crack cocaine, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Prosecutors said 31-year-old Angelo Kidd pleaded guilty to conspiring to possess, with intent to distribute, and distributing 28 grams or more of crack cocaine.
On Aug. 31, 2018, Buffalo Police executed search warrants at two Townsend Street addresses, after which Kidd was detained along with others. Officers seized about 158 grams of crack cocaine and 76 grams of marijuana, along with items used to process and package crack cocaine for distribution, prosecutors said.
On Jan. 21, the Town of Tonawanda Police pulled over a vehicle in which Kidd was in the passenger seat. A search of the vehicle recovered 462 grams of marijuana in a vacuum-sealed bag in the trunk and about $3,000 to $4,000 cash.
A total of 10 people were charged in the case.
Kidd is the first to plead guilty, prosecutors said.
Sentencing was scheduled for Feb. 26.
