Robert Allen, 44, of County Route 75, Mechanicville, pleaded guilty to felony criminal sale of cocaine and conspiracy charges. Authorities alleged he was a major cocaine distributor in Saratoga Springs and started investigating him last year.
In the course of that investigation, they arrested a dozen people, many of whom had contacted Allen asking to buy cocaine and marijuana. They were charged with conspiracies to participate in drug transactions.
One of those charged was Milton highway superintendent David C. Forbes.
Allen's sentencing is slated for Dec. 20.
