Schleede was arrested later the same day after selling glassine envelopes containing the same fentanyl mixture in a hotel parking lot in Ulster.

Search warrants executed on Schleede’s hotel room and storage locker recovered approximately 8,000 additional glassine envelopes, which contained fentanyl and heroin.

As a result of his convictions, Schleede faces at least 5 years and up to 40 years in prison, when he is sentenced.
