After selling cocaine to a confidential informant, an Austin man has pleaded guilty to felony drug sale.
Tyson Randall-George Thomas, 33, pleaded guilty to third-degree narcotics sale last Friday in Mower County Court. He reportedly sold cocaine to an informant on March 22 and March 29.
According to the court complaint, Thomas said he could get the drugs on March 21 but would have to travel to Rochester. Police then equipped the informant with a recorder and money and searched his car before executing the transaction on March 22, in which the informant bought 2.7 grams of cocaine, according to the report. The informant and officers set up another transaction on March 29, and the informant then purchased 3.7 grams of cocaine.
Two charges of felony second-degree drug sale have been dismissed. Thomas has sentencing set for Nov. 7.
