Gloversville resident faces prison time in heroin case

JOHNSTOWN – A Gloversville man who had more than 60 bags of heroin and marijuana in September pleaded guilty Thursday in Fulton County Court and will receive prison time.

Alex J. Robles-Flores, 22, of 3 Prospect Ave., pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance before Judge Polly A. Hoye, as part of a plea arrangement.

Sentencing was adjourned until a later date, but he is expected to receive 2 1/2 years in state prison.

Gloversville police and state police executed a search warrant at his home Sept. 20 that resulted in Robles-Flores’ arrest. Investigators said detectives found heroin, marijuana, and equipment used to package and weigh drugs for sale, police said at the time. Police said a total of 64 bags of heroin- with an estimated street value of more than $1,000 – were found at the location.

In other County Court action Thursday:

* Nicholas Salls, 25, of Gloversville, was sentenced by Hoye to two to four years in state prison, as part of a plea arrangement.

The sentence was based on his guilty plea Oct. 7 to one count of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Salls was arrested Aug. 4 by Fulton County sheriff’s deputies.

* Christina L. Gray, 26, of 88 Johnson Road, Northville, pleaded guilty before Hoye to one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, as part of a plea arrangement.

Sentencing was adjourned until a later date, but she is due to receive five years probation and a possible six-month jail sentence.

Gloversville police arrested Gray Oct. 26, charging her with fourth-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

Police said the administrator of the Getman Home contacted police about a small amount of cash missing from one of the residents of the home.

An investigation revealed Gray, employed at the home as a personal care aide, stole the resident’s credit card and used it to buy items for herself at Walmart, authorities said.

* Richard Anthony, 48, of Union Mills Road, Broadalbin, pleaded guilty before Judge Richard C. Giardino to one count of driving while intoxicated, as part of a plea arrangement.

Sentencing will be at a later date. He is slated to receive one year in the county jail and pay surcharges.

He was arrested Nov. 7 in the village of Broadalbin.
