PLATTSBURGH - Timothy J. Fleury, 28, Westville was sentenced to 10 years and a month for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and attempted possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

On May 5, 2008, Fleury led United States Border Patrol in a high-speed pursuit along the border near Constable. The pursuit resulted in the seizure of seven large hockey-style bags filled with about 300 pounds of high-grade Canadian marijuana.

On Sept. 7, 2007, Fleury met with undercover drug enforcement administration agents at a restaurant in Plattsburgh, attempting to purchase 50 pounds of marijuana.
