FALLS MAN IS SENTENCED UP TO 6 YEARS FOR DRUGS

A prison term of three to six years was ordered Thursday for Carmell V. Lucas, 29, of Niagara Falls by Niagara County Judge Amy J. Fricano.

Lucas, of 1549 LaSalle Ave., pleaded guilty earlier to a reduced charge of fourth-deagree criminal sale of a controlled substance stemming from sales of cocaine to an undercover police officer in Niagara Falls on Sept. 29, 1993.

In a separate cocaine-related case, Tracey Y. Garrison, also known of Tracey Garner, 26, of Niagara Falls, was placed on probation for five years by Niagara County Judge Charles J. Hannigan. Ms. Garrison pleaded guilty Feb. 21 to a reduced charge of attempted fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance in connection with an Aug. 23 sale of cocaine to an undercover police officer in Niagara Falls.

In an earlier sentencing, Judge Hannigan ordered five years' probation and fines totaling $1,300 for Michael R. Capone, 43, of 2171 Bedell Road, Grand Island.

Capone pleaded guilty to two charges of drunken driving and single counts of unlawful possession of marijuana, failure to signal a turn, and not wearing a seat belt in connection with an Aug. 12 incident in Niagara Falls.
