Riverside Avenue man arrested for heroin possession

A 36-year-old Riverside Avenue man was arrested for alleged heroin possession during a routine check on him at his house by state parole officers early Tuesday.

Angel L. Maldonado was arrested on a charge of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance by Buffalo police after parole officers reported finding a clear plastic bag containing alleged heroin in his van parked outside his house, along with six hypodermic needles, a silver spoon and two orange prescription pill bottles filled with what were described as an “unknown liquid.”
