An IRS supervisory revenue agent from Albany is charged in a major drug trafficking scheme.
Investigators with the United States Attorney District of New Jersey say 41-year-old Michael Shelli had a courier pick up cocaine from a home in New Jersey.
Shelli allegedly had the cocaine delivered to a home in Albany, where he would repackage it to sell.
Authorities say they have been investigating this since March.
Shelli faces up to life in prison and a $10 million fine if convicted. He is currently out on $100,000 bond.
