Buffalo man sentenced to 6 years in drug case

A Buffalo man was sentenced Tuesday to six years in prison, followed by three years of post-release supervision, by County Court Judge Michael Pietruszka, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.

Welton Miles, 38, pleaded guilty in March to four counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, the District Attorney's Office said.

According to prosecutors, Erie County Sheriff’s deputies and Buffalo Police searched Miles’ Stewart Avenue home on Jan. 31, 2017. Inside, they found nearly 500 envelopes containing heroin, fentanyl or a mixture of both, the District Attorney's Office said.

A bag containing more than 1/8 ounce of powder cocaine and a bag containing more than 1/8 ounce of fentanyl were discovered, the District Attorney's Office said.

Officers seized drug paraphernalia and aerosol cans with false bottoms to conceal drugs, the District Attorney's Office said.

Miles admitted he possessed the narcotics with the intention of selling them, the District Attorney's Office said.
