4 Lockport men arraigned on felony drug charges

LOCKPORT – Four Lockport men pleaded not guilty Thursday in Niagara County Court to indictments charging them with multiple drug sales.

Two of the defendants live in the same apartment building on Lincoln Place: Jose L. Molina-Roman and Marcus A. Walton, both 34.

Walton is accused of two counts each of third-degree criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance, while Walton faces three counts of each charge.

Both are accused of selling cocaine in the Town of Lockport, Molina-Roman on Jan. 10 and 22 and Walton on Jan. 14, 17 and 21, Assistant District Attorney Laura T. Bittner said.

Walton is awaiting sentencing for first-degree criminal contempt for violating a restraining order by damaging a former girlfriend’s clothes with bleach after entering her apartment Feb. 7.

Two counts each of third-degree drug sale and possession were lodged against Michael P. Salhany, 36, of Spruce Street, and Bradley A. Miner, 27, of Elmwood Avenue. Salhany was accused of selling morphine in the City of Lockport July 26 and 29, while Miner’s drug deals allegedly occurred Jan. 6.
