Chalise A. Bullock, a 24-year-old woman accused of being part of a substantial drug trafficking operation spanning from central New York to California, was sentenced to five years in prison by Judge Thomas Leone in the Cayuga County Court on Thursday.


Bullock was among 16 individuals apprehended in August, linked to a drug selling ring. She faced counts of second-degree conspiracy, a class B felony, and first and second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both class A felonies.

Under a previous agreement, Bullock’s charges were reduced to second-degree attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance. Additionally, she was sentenced to five years of post-release supervision.


The Finger Lakes Drug Task Force’s investigation, starting in April 2021, led to the arrest of the 16 individuals and revealed that the group received supplies of cocaine, methamphetamine, and pressed blue fentanyl pills from various cities across the country.

Multiple search warrants executed in different locations last year yielded a significant amount of drugs, cash, and firearms.
