When Greater Sudbury Police got a tip May 16 that Matthew Flesch was trafficking fentanyl, he was located traveling in a vehicle on Lasalle Boulevard.
Officers stopped the vehicle.
A search of Flesch turned up two 100-milligram fentanyl patches and $285 in cash in his wallet, four 50-mg fentanyl patches and, in a sock, officers located a one-quarter piece of a 100-mg fentanyl patch and 3.72 grams of cocaine.
At the time, Flesch was on probation from December 2014.
On Wednesday, Flesch, 33, pleaded guilty to fentanyl trafficking, cocaine possession and breach of probation.
His lawyer, Denis Michel, asked for a pre-sentence report, so Flesch will be sentenced in about eight weeks.
“The Crown will be seeking substantial time,” Michel told Ontario Court Justice Andrew Buttazzoni. “There has been pre-trial custody and there has been other matters going on in his life since he has been released (on bail).”
