A Pittsfield man is scheduled to be sentenced later this month after he pleaded culpable to 18 drug- and gun-related charges.
The Berkshire County Drug Task Force raided Cedar Street home of Sean M. Begley last July and discovered 205 bags of heroin, 53 vials of anabolic steroids, a small amount of cocaine, and three unlicensed handguns, along with ammunition.
Begley was cooperative with police during the raid, according to Assistant Berkshire District Attorney Richard M. Locke. Begley told police he was addicted to heroin and was selling the drugs to pay for his habit.
He pleaded guilty to possession of heroin with intent to distribute, three counts each of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, improper storage of a firearm, illegal ownership of a firearm, six counts of possession of ammunition without a firearm identification card, possession of cocaine (second offense), and possession of anabolic steroids.
Judge John A. Agostini said Begley would likely be ordered to serve a three- to four-year state prison sentence followed by five years of probation.
