ROCHESTER — U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced Tuesday that Andrew Culliton, 38, of West Seneca, NY, who was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, methamphetamine, was sentenced to 36 months in prison by U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Katelyn Hartford, who handled the case, stated that Culliton, along with others, conspired to distribute methamphetamine at “The Bone Yard,” an auto salvage yard in Dansville. On two occasions, March 2, 2017, and March 10, 2017, the defendant sold pure crystal methamphetamine to another individual known to law enforcement.

Culliton is one of seven defendants charged and convicted in this case.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge James J. Hunt, New York Field Division; the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department, under the direction of Sheriff Thomas Dougherty; and the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Eric Laughton.
