Webster man pleads guilty to role in meth-selling operations
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WHAM) - A Webster man pleaded guilty in federal court Friday to conspiring to sell methamphetamines.
Brian Donaldson, 50, is accused in a methamphetamine trafficking case being investigated by the DEA.
According to federal prosecutors, Donaldson and another man, Pablo Ulloa, were at a motel in Hamburg on October 27, 2016. DEA agents were tipped off and worked with Hamburg Police to watch the two.
When Donaldson left the motel in the evening, officers pulled him over and found a small amount of methamphetamine, as well as a lock box which contained a much larger amount of methamphetamine.
Agents then went back to the motel room where Donaldson and Ulloa were staying. More containers of methamphetamine, several cell phones, drug packaging materials, a scale and pipes were seized.
Donaldson pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five grams or more of methamphetamine. He faces a minimum of five years in prison and up to 40 years and a $5 million fine.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on August 28 at 11 a.m.
Charges are pending against Ulloa.
