Buffalo woman admits to North Tonawanda heroin deal

LOCKPORT – A Buffalo woman pleaded guilty in State Supreme Court Wednesday to selling heroin to a police informant in North Tonawanda two years ago.

Amy E. Capozzi, 32, of Plymouth Avenue, a former City of Tonawanda resident, admitted to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and was admitted to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. The drug deal occurred March 27, 2013.

In another diversion case Wednesday, Brandon M. Howard, 27, of Dysinger Road, Lockport, was admitted to the program after pleading guilty to third-degree sale for a July 7 cocaine deal in the City of Lockport.

Both defendants face up to nine years in prison if they wash out of treatment, but they will receive misdemeanor pleas with nonjail sentences if they succeed.
