Western New York man pleads guilty to drug conspiracy charge

BUFFALO, N.Y. — A Niagara Falls, N.Y., man pleaded guilty today before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara to conspiracy to possess, with the intent to distribute, 100 kilograms of marijuana. The man faces up to 40 years in prison and a $2 million fine.

Wally Reynolds, 36, supervised other individuals in a drug conspiracy who imported marijuana from Canada into the United States. The defendant then distributed the marijuana to his customers in the United States.

The plea is the result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

Sentencing is scheduled for May 6 before Judge Arcara.
