He will be sentenced on June 14.
On October 27, 2017, a man called the authorities and said he had been shot twice.
He had a gunshot wound in his upper back/shoulder region and also his left thigh region.
The victim said that the Foderaro had called him to purchase drugs and said that they should meet near the post office in Easton. Foderaro then instructed the victim to head out of town to a bridge near 231 St. north of K-192.
The victim said that as he was going to give him the drugs and waiting for the money, Foderaro shot at him instead.
The victim then attempted to escape and Foderaro continued to shoot.
The authorities were able to find the firearm and found it was stolen. They also recovered cocaine that weighed approximately 86 grams and was field tested presumptive positive for cocaine. The marijuana weighed approximately 43 grams and was field tested presumptive positive for marijuana.
Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said, “Drugs are at the root of almost all of our crimes. We need to continue to fight this epidemic, and try to help those who suffer from these horrible addictions.”
