Man pleads guilty on drug, weapons possession charges

A Buffalo man pleaded guilty Tuesday to drugs and weapons possession charges stemming from a police raid on his home in 2016.

Arthur “Cutty” Lewis, 37, pleaded guilty before Erie County Court Judge Michael Pietruszka to second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Lewis was arrested Feb. 25, 2016, during a Buffalo police raid on his Crossman Avenue home. Police found a large bag containing more than 4 ounces of cocaine, paraphernalia used in the sale of narcotics, a loaded Glock 9-mm pistol and $41,700 in cash.

Lewis previously spent eight years in prison after being convicted of first-degree attempted assault in 2005, according to the Erie County District Attorney's office.

He faces a minimum of eight years in prison when he is sentenced April 30 by Pietruszka.
