Falls man sentenced to prison as marijuana dealer

A Niagara Falls was sentenced to 21 months in prison for dealing marijuana, U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced Friday.

Kevin C. Farrell, 33, was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute 50 kilograms or more of marijuana. He was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward H. White said that from 2002 through 2010, Farrell purchased half-pound and one-pound quantities of marijuana. Farrell then redistributed the marijuana in smaller quantities in Niagara County. Charges against co-defendant David Davis were dismissed. 

The investigation was conducted by several police agencies, including State Police, Drug Enforcement Administation, Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, Border Patrol and Buffalo and Niagara Falls police.
