LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man and a Lockport woman pleaded guilty to drug felonies Friday in Niagara County Court, and both were assigned to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment.

Anthony A. Zaccarella, 60, of Maple Avenue, Niagara Falls, admitted to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Police seized heroin when they raided his home March 29.

Latasha L. Ford, 31, of Jackson Street, Lockport, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for selling cocaine to a police informant May 24.

Since it is her second drug felony in two years, Ford faces a maximum of 12 years in prison if she washes out of diversion. Zaccarella faces a nine-year maximum.
