Man to plead guilty to possession, selling fentanyl

RAPID CITY, S.D.  — A Rapid City man admits bringing enough fentanyl into western South Dakota to kill hundreds of thousands of people, if not millions.

37-year-old Cory Croyle has signed documents saying he plans to plead guilty to a federal drug charge.

According to the documents, he obtained large quantities, sometimes from Colorado.

He then brought the drugs back to South Dakota to sell, primarily in the Rapid City area.

Court documents do not include a specific amount, only that Croyle and at least one other person distributed somewhere from just under a pound to two-and-a-half pounds of fentanyl.

According to a plea deal, when he’s sentenced, Croyle faces anywhere from 10 years behind bars to life in prison.

Croyle was arrested in July 2023.  The Nebraska State Patrol said a trooper pulled over a Ford F-250 that was speeding on Highway 71 near Gering, NE.

Troopers searched the vehicle and found over 1,400 suspected fentanyl pills, the patrol said. Drug paraphernalia and small amounts of meth and marijuana were also discovered.

The vehicle’s three occupants – Schuyler Lammers, 36; Cory Croyle, 36; and Kaylonie Goff, 29, all from Rapid City, S.D.  – were arrested on suspicion of several charges, including possession of a controlled substance.

The trio were detained in the Scotts Bluff County Jail.
