New York man gets prison for PCP trafficking in New Mexico

February 7, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New York man has been sentenced to nearly four years in federal prison for drug trafficking in New Mexico.

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Taylor Overton Foster of White Plains was given a 46-month prison term Tuesday in an Albuquerque court.

Foster was arrested by federal agents in February 2017 after they seized more than one pound of phencyclidine from him at an Albuquerque train station.

Prosecutors say a DEA agent discovered the PCP in a leaking bottle inside Foster’s backpack.

Foster was charged by criminal complaint and later indicted for possessing PCP with intent to distribute.

He pleaded guilty to the charge last July.
