New Jersey man pleads guilty to heroin distribution in Plattsburgh

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WCAX) A New Jersey man has pleaded guilty to trafficking heroin in the Plattsburgh area through the U.S. mail.

Federal authorities say Keith Moses pleaded guilty Monday to supplying about 455 grams of heroin for distribution in Plattsburgh between December of 2017 to September 2018. Authorities say he sent heroin through the mail to a co-conspirator in Plattsburgh. The co-conspirator then distributed the heroin in the Plattsburgh area and returned a portion of the drug proceeds to Moses.

Moses faces at least five years in prison when he is sentenced in October.
