3 Lockport residents indicted in pot case

LOCKPORT – A Lockport couple and a friend were named in a marijuana indictment unsealed Tuesday in State Supreme Court.

David Manna, 46, of North Transit Street, pleaded not guilty to first-degree criminal sale and second- and fourth-degree possession of marijuana. His wife Deborah L. Manna, 45, and friend Clayton J. Kelkenberg, 33, both of the same address, are charged as accomplices to second-degree pot possession. Deborah Manna pleaded not guilty Tuesday and Kelkenberg is to be arraigned today.

Assistant District Attorney Peter M. Wydysh said David Manna allegedly sold 3.9 pounds of pot to a police informant in Hartland Oct. 30. That sale led to a search of an auto where the other two defendants were sitting, and another 1.9 pounds of pot was allegedly found there. A search at Manna’s workplace uncovered a small amount of pot as well, Wydysh said.
