Torrence Dyck, a 51-year-old Rochester resident, was sentenced to 150 months in prison for his involvement in a drug trafficking operation and illegal firearms possession. U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr., handed down the sentence following Dyck’s conviction on charges of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.


Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett A. Harvey reported that Dyck ran a drug house on Warsaw Street, employing individuals to sell cocaine. Authorities seized about 640 grams of cocaine, over $20,000 in cash, drug packaging materials, and two firearms during the investigation. Dyck’s criminal history includes multiple felony convictions, which legally bar him from possessing firearms.

The successful prosecution stemmed from efforts by the Rochester Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office. This case highlights ongoing efforts to tackle drug-related crimes and firearm violations in the community.
