Arrest for Intent to Sell Fentanyl, Heroin, and Meth

Written By Editor on 7/23/23 | 7/23/23

DELHI, NY – Acting District Attorney Shawn Smith, announced that Thomas A. Stanley, 43, of New Berlin, appeared in Delaware County Court on July 20, and was arraigned on a sealed indictment.    

Stanley appeared before the Honorable John L. Hubbard, Delaware County Court Judge, and a Six Count Indictment was unsealed.  The Indictment charges the defendant with one class D felony and two class B felonies. The indictment alleges that the defendant intended to sell the heroin, fentanyl, and methamphetamine that was discovered in the trunk of a car on April 30, 2023, in the Village of Sidney.   

After being arraigned, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the indictment. Due to New York State’s Bail reform law, charges relating to the sale of drugs do not qualify for bail.  As such, the defendant was released from custody under the supervision of the Delaware County Probation Department. 

Each of the Class B felonies carry a maximum 9-year sentence.  

Acting District Attorney Shawn Smith commended Officer Royce Terry of the Sidney Police for his thorough investigation of this case. 

Smith stated, “This is the 6th felony indictment obtained in the last month, all involving illegal drug deals. My office will continue to work with the Sidney Village police and other law enforcement agencies in their effort to remove illegal drugs from our County.  

As are all persons accused of a crime, this defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
