ROCHESTER, NY-US Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Timothy Granison, 43, of Rochester, NY, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine before the U.S. District Court Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr. The charge carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison, a maximum of 40 years and a fine of $5,000,000.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew T. McGrath, who is handling the case, said Granison was a member of a drug trafficking organization run by Jason Siplin that distributed large quantities of cocaine and crack cocaine from a drugstore on Glenwood Avenue. During the conspiracy, Granison regularly obtained large amounts of cocaine from Jason Siplin, which he then sold to his own customers. On May 19, 2021, investigators intercepted phone calls between Granison and co-conspirator Dkeidron Dublin, in which the two discussed Granison resupplying Dublin with cocaine in the afternoon. At approximately 3:23 p.m., security officers observed Granison pull up to the Birch Crescent residence in Dublin in Rochester. Dublin exited the residence and got into Granison’s vehicle. Investigators then surrounded the vehicle and took Granison and Dublin into custody. Upon execution of search warrants on the vehicle and Dublin residence, 31 grams of cocaine and $1,241.00 in cash were recovered.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Barry Chase, the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of Acting Chief David Smith, the team of Greater Rochester Area Narcotics and Homeland Security Investigations, under Acting Special Agent in Charge Matthew Scarpino.

Sentencing is scheduled for September 6, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. before Judge Geraci.
