BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Members of the Erie County Sheriff’s Office raided an Emslie Street residence on Thursday and say they found three-fourths of a kilogram of crack cocaine during the search.
In addition to that, deputies say they also found marijuana and packaging materials.
Buffalo resident Quinton Hill, 38, a four-time convicted felon, was charged with a multitude of drug offenses, including two felonies for criminal substance possession and criminal possession of a narcotic with intent to sell.
Authorities say they began investigating Hill in July of 2015. As part of the investigation, the Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit sought a search warrant after an early February road patrol arrest.
The crack cocaine seized in the raid has an estimated street value of $42,000.
Hill was committed to the Erie County Holding Center.
