Erie County Sheriff’s officials confiscated about two pounds of cocaine last week when they arrested a Buffalo man in his Broadway home.

Paul Minor, 35, was charged Thursday with felony drug possession after the Sheriffs’ Narcotics Unit with the assistance of the Buffalo Police Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at his residence.

Police said they found two pounds of suspected cocaine with a street value of about $40,000, along with scales and packaging material. More than $11,000 in US currency was also seized.

More arrests are expected as a result of the search warrant.

Minor was being held in the Erie County Holding Center awaiting arraignment in Buffalo City Court.
