January 14, 2013- ErieCountySheriff Timothy B. Howard reports that the Erie County Sheriffs' Narcotics Unit with the assistance of the Buffalo Police Narcotics Unit, arrested a Paul Minor, 35 years old, after a search warrant was executed at his residence at 959 Broadway Street in the City of Buffalo, NY. Minor possessed approximately two pounds( just shy of 1 kilo) of suspected cocaine along with scales and packaging material. This is an A-1 felony amount of cocaine with a street value of approximately $40,000 and over $11,000 in US currency was also seized. This is an ongoing investigation and more arrests are expected as a result of this search warrant. Some of this cocaine was destined for the suburbs of Erie County and both agencies working collectively led to this large seizure of money and drugs. Minor was taken to the ECHC to await arraignment in Buffalo City Court.
