Troy man admits to trafficking large amounts of heroin
A man from Troy pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to trafficking large amounts of heroin.
Carlos Leon Rivera, 62, admitted to working with 42-year-old Mario Figueroa-Portalatin to sell heroin in and around Troy.
Leon says he would travel to New York City, and pick up at least 500 grams of heroin at a time.
Leon worked with Figueroa to package the drugs for sale to customers.
Leon faces at least 10 years in prison
Figueroa pled guilty last August and is awaiting sentencing.
A third defendant, 42-year-old Jose Leon Roldan from Troy, pled not guilty to drug charges and is awaiting trial.
