Man Convicted of Selling Fentanyl, Methamphetamine, Cocaine in Wilton, Saratoga Springs

BALLSTON SPA — After less than one hour of jury deliberation a 43-year-old man was convicted in Saratoga County Court of selling fentanyl in the town of Wilton on three separate occasions during December 2022, and selling cocaine and methamphetamine in Wilton and the city of Saratoga Springs.

Overall, Shahid M. Smith was convicted of all 10 charges that were submitted to the jury, Saratoga County District Attorney Karen Heggen said in a statement. 

“The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office Nacotics Unit’s work resulted in removing a drug dealer from our streets who sought monetary gain while peddling potentially lethal drugs in our community,” Heggen said. 

Smith is scheduled to be sentenced April 22 and faces more than 30 years in prison, Heggen added.
