FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - A 19-year-old from Fort Wayne was sentenced in federal court on Wednesday after she was found with over 20,000 fentanyl pills that she admitted she intended to sell.

The United States Attorney’s Office Northern District of Indiana said that Madison McCoy was sentenced to 57 months in prison and 5 years of probation after she pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

The office says McCoy was stopped along I-69 in Allen County on June 16 for a traffic violation. When police approached her, documents say she admitted to having drug paraphernalia in the car.

Police say they found two packages wrapped in dark plastic under a sweatshirt on the floor of the car, which had multiple vacuum-sealed bags with small blue pills stamped with “M30” inside. Documents say there were about 20,000 pills that tested positive for the presence of Fentanyl and had a street value of about $500,000.
