Jose Bonilla, 48, pleaded guilty before Erie County Court Judge Michael Pietruszka to three counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, one count of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Lackawanna police officers executed a search warrant Aug. 11, 2017, at Bonilla's South Park Avenue residence and seized heroin, cocaine, three loaded handguns, more than $4,000 cash and drug paraphernalia, prosecutors said.
