LOCKPORT – Tony L. Moore hid 1.75 ounces of cocaine in a box of frozen pierogi. Now he is going to prison for five years for that felony and two others.
Moore, 35, was arrested July 28, 2015, when police executed a search warrant at his Niagara Avenue home in Niagara Falls and found the cocaine in the pierogi in the freezer. They also found an unlicensed, loaded revolver and $695 in cash, which Moore forfeited.
In a separate case, Moore was charged with a felony count of driving while intoxicated in an April 1, 2015, traffic stop on Centre Avenue in the Falls.
State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. imposed concurrent sentences on all three charges: five years for the gun, four years for the cocaine and 16 months for four years for the DWI. He also tacked on five years of post-release supervision for Moore, 35.
