Niagara Falls man charged with dealing crack

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man who admitted in July that he violated probation by drinking and using drugs was arraigned in Niagara County Court Friday on an indictment accusing of selling crack cocaine twice since then.

Michael G. Maye, 31, of Whitney Avenue, pleaded not guilty to two counts each of third-degree criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance. He allegedly sold crack to a police informant in the Falls on Aug. 17 and 20.

Maye could draw up to a year in jail Wednesday, when he is to be sentenced on the probation violation. He had pleaded guilty to petit larceny after being accused of taking part in the robbery of three men on Pierce Avenue in the Falls on Sept. 12, 2013.

Maye’s probation officer also accused him of having a rifle and some bullets stashed in his house, but Maye didn’t admit to that.
