The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo reports Antasia Babcock entered the plea on Monday to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine.







In October 2020 Babcock, along with co-defendant Jun Martinez, were arrested for the alleged crimes following a drug raid of a Wescott Street residence.
