A York City man known as "Boopers" entered a guilty plea Wednesday on federal charges that he lied in his testimony about a drug-dealing case.

Police alleged Ramon Rosario, 30, told them June 10, 2014, he'd bought drugs from someone who was the target of a federal investigation into cocaine dealing. However, police later discovered he hadn't done so at all, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's office in Harrisburg.

This obstructed the undercover investigation, police allege.

Police say Rosario admitted he'd done this. Rosario entered his plea Tuesday, and a judge will in time review it and decide whether or not to accept it, and will then sentence him.

Rosario faces up to 20 years if the judge accepts his guilty plea, according to the news release.

The York City Police Department investigated this case along with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the release states.
