BUFFALO, N.Y.(WIVB) – A Lancaster man has pleaded guilty to possessing and selling fentanyl, oxymorphone, and oxycodone.

Jordan Warunek, 22, was sentenced Tuesday to two years probation by U.S. District Judge Richard Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Catherine Baumgarten is handling the case and says Warunek conspired with others and bought fentanyl patches from co-defendant Barbara Moran, selling them to an undercover officer on November 30 and December 3, 2012.

Warunek also bought oxymorphone and oxycodone from Moran and sold the drugs to undercover officers in late 2012.

Barbara Moran, Mary Moran, and Gregory Pendziwiatr have all been convicted of similar charges and are awaiting sentencing, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Cheektowaga Police Department joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the investigation.
