ANCHORAGE - A 31-year-old Anchorage man has pleaded guilty in a federal crack cocaine case.

Prosecutors say Cassero Lenell Washington pleaded guilty to one count of possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute.

Washington was accused of selling crack cocaine on three occasions to a government informer in 2007 and 2008.

Prosecutors say Washington also was involved in a driving under the influence traffic stop. Police then obtained a search warrant and found a large quantity of the drug, packaged for individual sale.

Altogether, Washington was linked to nearly 133 grams of the drug.

Sentencing is set for January.
