AMBRIDGE - A local man is potentially facing life in prison for the possession of a large quantity of fentanyl.

Federal court records show that Michael Gamble, 37, of Ambridge, pleaded guilty to charges of the possession of fentanyl on Thursday afternoon. The fentanyl was found after officers executed a search warrant on Gamble's residence in December 2020.

According to investigators, Gamble was in his basement at the time and arresting officers found fentanyl and over $2,500 cash on his person. After searching the residence, officers found a hidden compartment and seized about approximately 90 grams of fentanyl.

Gamble is scheduled to receive his sentence on Feb. 9, 2023. Under federal law, Gamble may face life in prison, an $8 million fine or both.
