A federal jury in Pittsburgh deliberated for six hours on Wednesday before finding a Beaver Falls man guilty of violating five drug laws.

According to federal records, Anthony Taylor was accused of a conspiracy that sold almost 18 ounces of cocaine and three-quarters of an ounce of the synthetic painkiller fentanyl in Beaver Falls.

He was arrested at his Ninth Avenue residence in 2017.

At that time, authorities allegedly seized fentanyl, cocaine, packaging material, a digital scale, more than $10,000 in cash, and cellular telephones.

U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab scheduled sentencing for June 11.

Taylor could be sentenced to at least five years in prison.

The state Attorney General’s Office, in conjunction with the Beaver Falls Police Department, the New Brighton Police Department, and the state police, investigated.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
