Deloyd M. Lesane, 38, of Syracuse pleaded guilty Monday to possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and fentanyl in Gouverneur, according to United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith.

Lesane was selling crack cocaine and fentanyl from an apartment in Gouverneur in April 2017. During a search of that apartment, agents recovered approximately 57.5 grams of crack cocaine, approximately 2.5 grams of fentanyl, approximately 19.7 grams of cocaine, a digital scale with cocaine residue, drug packaging material and $2,708 in U.S. currency, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

If accepted by Senior United States District Judge Norman A. Mordue, the plea calls for Lesane to serve 10 years in prison when sentenced on August 27.

This case was investigated by members of the St. Lawrence County Drug Task Force, Gouverneur Police Department, and HSI. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas G. Collyer.
