A 38-year-old Buffalo man on Friday was placed on probation for three-years for conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Montique Shelton was reportedly a low-level player in a group trafficking in drugs in Buffalo. He was convicted of purchasing real estate in the city in his own name using drug sale proceeds, leading to his arrest for money laundering, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.

As a result of conviction, the property at 341 Hinman Ave. has been forfeited.

Shelton was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.
