An Arizona meth dealer who agreed to supply a Rochester-based drug trafficker pleaded guilty to federal drug charges.

U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced Monday that Wayne E. Marshall, 53, of Phoenix pleaded guilty to a felony charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, methamphetamine.

 The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, a fine of $1 million or both. The charges stemmed from a joint federal and state investigation, which revealed that between June 24, 2008, and July 14, 2008, Marshall agreed to distribute a quantity of methamphetamine to a Rochester-based drug trafficker, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett A. Harvey, who handled the case. The drug transaction was to take place in Phoenix.

 To date, 11 other co-conspirators have been convicted for various drug trafficking and firearms offenses as a result of this investigation.

The FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the New York State Police participated in the investigation.
