Falls crack dealer pleads guilty

LOCKPORT – Anthony D. Bones of Niagara Falls, a veteran of the cocaine trade, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Niagara County Court to selling crack cocaine in the Falls last December.

Bones, 27, of Augustus Place, was promised a sentence of no more than three years in state prison when he returns before County Judge Sara Sheldon Aug. 26. He admitted to fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. His record includes nearly two years in the County Jail on a January 2012 cocaine possession arrest, and six months in federal prison last year for violating his supervised release on a 2011 conviction for intention to distribute cocaine.

In another case Wednesday, State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. placed Darryn M. Garvin on interim probation for a year, pending a final sentence for felony driving while intoxicated. Garvin, 56, of LaSalle Avenue, Buffalo, was arrested Oct. 12 in the Town of Lockport, where his blood alcohol content was measured at 0.12 percent. His 13-year-old was his passenger at the time.
