A Buffalo man out on bail faces new drug charges following a drug overdose death on Grand Island, the Erie County Sheriff's Office said.

Miguel Parrilla, 29, was arrested Wednesday on Grand Island, accused of possessing more than 5 ounces of heroin, crack cocaine, marijuana and about 100 Xanax pills, the Sheriff's Office said. Investigators also found a scale with drug residue, drug cutting agents and plastic baggies, officials said.

They charged Parrilla with a felony and a misdemeanor count of criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a narcotic with intent to sell, criminal possession of a narcotic drug and possessing a controlled substance not in its original packaging.

While he was being processed, the Sheriff's Office discovered Parrilla had been released on bail for a drug-related arrest in Buffalo, officials said. He is being held in the Erie County Holding Center pending arraignment in Grand Island Town Court.

The Sheriff's Office declined to release the location of Parrilla's arrest or of the overdose, citing on-going investigations. The person who overdosed was only identified as a woman in her 20s.
