PITTSBURGH -

An Akron, Ohio man is scheduled to be sentenced in September after being convicted of supplying a Farrell drug dealer with cocaine.

A federal judge in Pittsburgh found Adolph Brown guilty of cocaine distribution after a bench trial on Monday.

According to an FBI affidavit, Brown was in the process of delivering 27 ounces of cocaine to Farrell when the car he was riding in was pulled over by the Pennsylvania State Police in Sharon in March 2015.

Police found the cocaine in a container duct taped behind a child's car seat.

Brown didn't know that federal agents had been listening in on his phone conversation with a drug dealer as they set up the drug delivery, according to the affidavit.

Police say Brown confessed to them that he was bringing the cocaine to a guy named “Danny” in Farrell.

Brown is scheduled to return to federal court on November 13 to be sentenced.
