Wayne County sheriff's deputies arrest Freddie Lee Williams, 69, and Christopher J. Herring, 57, following accusations of intent to sell cocaine, oxycodone.
WOLCOTT — A pair of Wayne County men were charged with felony drug crimes on Wednesday, including one Wolcott resident who is already on probation following his arrest for the intent to sell crack cocaine earlier this year.
Members of the Wayne County Special Investigation Unit and road patrol deputies served a search warrant at 5932 Jefferson St., Wolcott, which led to the arrest of 69-year-old Freddie Lee Williams Jr., charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class B felony.
According to deputies, Williams is suspected of possessing cocaine with the intent to sell the drug.
Williams pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance after his arrest in February following an investigation into the sale of crack cocaine.
Also on Thursday, Christopher Herring, 57, of North Rose, was found at the Jefferson Street location, where he was accused of being in possession of more than a half an ounce of oxycodone prescription pills.
Deputies charged Herring with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Both men were arraigned in Wolcott Village Court and placed in the Wayne County Jail — Williams on $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond and Herring on $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond.
They will reappear in court at a later date.
