ALBANY- A Lake Katrine man pled guilty on Thursday to distributing fentanyl in Ulster County.


Timothy Schleede, 30, appeared in Albany federal court and pled to one count of distribution of a controlled substance and one count of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.


As part of his plea, Schleede admitted that on August 26, 2020, he distributed a fentanyl mixture in glassine envelopes to another person in a mall parking lot in the Town of Ulster.  Schleede was arrested later the same day after selling glassine envelopes containing the same fentanyl mixture in a hotel parking lot in Ulster.  

Search warrants executed on Schleede’s hotel room and storage locker recovered approximately 8,000 additional glassine envelopes, which contained fentanyl and heroin.


As a result of his convictions, Schleede faces five to 40 years in prison, when he is sentenced by United States District Judge Mae D’Agostino next February.


This case was investigated by URGENT and the DEA and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Emmet O’Hanlon.
