Batavia woman charged with cocaine trafficking

BATAVIA – A 32-year-old Batavia woman was arrested Friday morning on an indictment warrant accusing her of crack cocaine trafficking in the Batavia area.

Toni M. White was arrested by the Genesee County Local Drug Enforcement Task Force on an indictment charging her with criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree.

White was the object of an eight-month investigation of crack cocaine sales in the area. She faces a mandatory prison term of up to 25 years if convicted on the charges.

During her arraignment prosecutors told Genesee County Judge Robert Noonan that White was indicted after allegedly selling quantities of crack cocaine to an undercover agent of the county drug task force.

She was allowed to leave the county jail Friday afternoon but ordered by Genesee County Judge Robert Noonan to remain in her West Main Street Road home seven days a week from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. until her case is resolved.

She was initially jailed in lieu of $5,000 bail but her lawyers convinced the judge to grant her a release under supervision with a stiff curfew.
