Two men and two youths were arrested Friday afternoon in Alden on drug charges, Erie County Sheriff’s officials said.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Donald L. Cordova, 30, Rande Fisher, 21, a 17-year-old male and a 15-year-old male after raiding a Chestnut Street home in the village just after noon.

Sheriff’s officials said they found marijuana, cocaine, scales and other drug paraphernalia, adding that Cordova had a surveillance camera at the front door watching officers. He attempted to flush the marijuana down the toilet, officials said, but was caught by narcotics detectives.

Cordova and Fisher were charged with felony drug possession and child endangerment. Along with the 17-year-old, they were taken to Erie County Holding Center to await arraignment in Alden Village Court, police said, while the 15-year-old was released to his mother and issued an appearance ticket to return to Family Court.
