Buffalo man charged with possessing $42,000 worth of crack cocaine

A Buffalo man previously convicted of four felonies will be in court Tuesday after he was charged last week with possessing $42,000 in crack cocaine, the Erie County Sheriff’s Office said.

Quinton Hill, 38, was arrested after a raid on Emslie Street on Thursday afternoon. Authorities started investigating Hill in July, the sheriff’s office said, and the investigation culminated after an arrest earlier this month by a deputy on road patrol. That arrest led authorities to seek a search warrant, which turned up three-fourths of a kilogram of crack, marijuana and various packaging materials, the sheriff’s office said.

Hill, who is being held in the Erie County Holding Center, was charged with a Class A felony for criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony count of criminal possession of a narcotic with intent to sell, three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possessing of marijuana.
