Largest Drug Bust in Walden History Leads to Guilty Plea
The largest drug bust in Village of Walden history led to a guilty plea.
On Monday in Orange County court, 38-year-old Terrance Burton of New Windsor pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a controlled substance for possessing over eight ounces of cocaine in February of 2017, at a home in the Village of Walden.
On February 22 and February 23, 2017, Village of Walden Police intercepted two packages containing narcotics intended for Terrance Burton as part of an ongoing investigation.
The narcotics recovered totaled four kilograms, the largest amount ever seized in the Village of Walden, officials say.
After the initial arrests in the case, the investigation continued with the aid of the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. The matter was submitted to a grand jury which charged Terrance Burton with crimes including conspiracy and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
The indictment alleged that Burton was engaged in a conspiracy to possess and sell cocaine and heroin.
At the time Burton pleaded guilty, he admitted to possessing over eight ounces of cocaine on February 23, 2017, at the East Main Street home in Walden.
Burton faces up to 20 in prison when he sentenced on July 30, 2018.
