Dayton man sentenced to 10 years in prison for distributing fentanyl
DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - A Dayton man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for distributing fentanyl.
Authorities say Nicholas Gay, 37, sold fentanyl to an informant three times and told the informant how to dilute the drug to make more of a profit.
In September of 2016, Gay was arrested as part of a long-term drug trafficking investigation by the Montgomery County R.A.N.G.E. Task Force. Investigators say they found 200 grams of fentanyl in Gay's home, fentanyl/heroin mixture inside a Crown Royal bag and $5,000 in cash.
In September of 2017, Gay pleaded guilty to distributing fentanyl. "Gay had in his home more than 200 grams of various fentanyl mixtures – the equivalent of thousands of potential sales to drug addicts,” U.S. Attorney Glassman said. Gay has already served time for dealing cocaine, authorities say.
