A Lancaster man was placed on probation for two years by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara on his drug conspiracy plea as a low-level member of a local ring that trafficked in fentanyl, oxymorphone and oxycodone two years ago until a federal and Cheektowaga police undercover investigation operation derailed it in December 2012.

Jordan Warunek, 22,was sentenced on his plea for cooperating with his former ring cohorts Barbara Moran, Mary Moran and Gregory Pendziwiatr, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Catherine Baumgarten.

Warunek would buy the illegal drugs from Barbara Moran and he was arrested for sales to undercover agents in September, November and early December 2012, the prosecutor said. The Morans and Pendziwiatr are all awaiting sentencing in the case.
