Three arrested in roundup on charges of drug dealing

Three people were rounded up in Chautauqua County Thursday by the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force in unrelated incidents that culminated several months of investigation, according to reports.

Cody A. Davis, 16, of Columbus Avenue, Dunkirk, was charged with criminal sale and multiple counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Davis sold crack to undercover police agents on several occasions over the last several months, police said. Additional arrests in the case are expected, police said, as their probe into crack cocaine trafficking in Dunkirk continues.

Agents are requesting anyone with information into drug trafficking in northern Chautauqua County to contact the task force's office at 679-4777.

Meanwhile, agents reported that a six-month investigation into crack dealing in Jamestown resulted in Thursday's arrest of Koran D. Leeper, 33, of West 10th Street.

Leeper also was charged with criminal sale and multiple counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Police said they made "multiple undercover purchases of crack cocaine from Leeper." He was subsequently indicted by a Chautauqua County grand jury. He was taken into custody and held at the Chautauqua County Jail.

A third arrest was made when officers raided the Jamestown home of Jensen L. Vasquez Thursday.

Vasquez, 19, of Langford Street was charged with criminal sale and multiple counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Police said he sold crack to undercover agents over the last two months. Police seized a quantity of crack cocaine from the Langford Street address with an estimated street value of $3,500.
