A drug dealer from West Seneca pleaded guilty Wednesday to drug sales and possession of a weapon.

District Attorney John Flynn says Gregory Covington, 30, sold a dangerous mixture of heroin, cocaine and fentanyl to an undercover state trooper on April 22 and April 29 of 2016.

State Police arrested Covington on May 5, 2016. Police found a .380 semi-automatic pistol while executing a search warrant of his vehicle. They say it was underneath the gear shifter plate in the car.

Covington faces a maximum sentence of 45 years in prison.
