SARATOGA COUNTY, N.Y.—A Moreau man was found guilty after a trial that took place March 31.
Christopher Vanguilder, 47, was found guilty on six charges.
Vanguilder was charged with two counts of Criminal Sale of a Narcotic Drug, two counts of Possession with Intent to sell, and two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance.
After investigation, the Sheriff's Department found that Vanguilder was cooperating with drug dealers from New York City, and allowing them to open up shop in his home for local distribution.
"This verdict brings to light this practice of the "downstate-upstate" supply link, and how important it is to identify those local "smaller" dealers who are allowing the bigger ones to essentially open up a store," said District Attorney James Murphy.
Vanguilder's sentencing is scheduled for May 30 at 1:30 p.m., where he faces up to 12 years in prison.
