Falls man charged with crack cocaine sales

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man, arrested Tuesday morning when police battered down the door of his 37th Street apartment as he was getting dressed, was arraigned in Niagara County Court Wednesday on an indictment charging him with selling crack cocaine.

Wayne F. Jones Jr., 30, pleaded not guilty to two counts of third-degree criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance, and was ordered held in lieu of $5,000 bail.

Assistant District Attorney Peter M. Wydysh said Jones was caught on tape allegedly selling crack to a police informant Jan. 2 and 8. When Jones was arrested Tuesday, police said they found crack on a table in the apartment, but that is not part of the indictment.
