A Pennsylvania man was found guilty following his December arrest for possession with intent to distribute.

Michael Welsh, of Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, was found guilty by a Carroll County jury Tuesday for possession with intent to distribute fentanyl and possession with intent to distribute heroin and related offenses, according to a news release from the Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office.

On Nov. 29, Welsh was found slumped over, unconscious in his car at 30 Carroll St., according to the release. When awakened by the officer, he appeared to be under the influence to his red and glassy eyes, but denied any drug use.

A certified drug detection dog gave a positive alert to the presence of controlled dangerous substance, according to the release, and upon their search, officers found 18 gel capsules of fentanyl, some of which were mixed with heroin. According to testimony during the trial, Welsh purchased the drugs in Baltimore City and transported them to Carroll County.

Welsh’s sentencing will be held on August 26, 2019.
