HARRISBURG - Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane today announced that a Lehigh Valley man entered an open guilty plea following allegations that he sold large quantities of cocaine and crystal methamphetamine throughout Allentown and the Lehigh Valley.
Luis Gonzalez-Contreras, a Mexican national and purported cartel associate, entered the plea before Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas Judge Robert L Steinberg. Gonzalez-Contreras is scheduled to be sentenced on May 29, 2014.
Gonzalez-Contreras pled guilty to eight counts of delivery of methamphetamine, two counts of corrupt organizations, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, one count of delivery of cocaine, one count of criminal conspiracy and one count of criminal use of a communication facility.
