BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. and Special Agent in Charge James Hunt, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, New York Division announced today that Dolores Plumer, 39, of Orchard Park, N.Y., was charged by criminal complaint with possession with intent to distribute, and distribution of, cocaine. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Brendan T. Cullinane, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, between June and July of 2017, the defendant on three occasions sold cocaine to an individual working with the Drug Enforcement Administration. On Aug. 3, 2017, DEA special agents executed a search warrant at Plumer’s residence at 5125 Berg Road in Orchard Park and recovered digital scales with suspected cocaine residue and a box of plastic baggies for drug packaging.
The defendant made her initial appearance this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge H. Kenneth Schroeder and was released on conditions.
The criminal complaint is the result of an investigation by the DEA Buffalo Resident Office.
The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
