NIAGARA FALLS – A North Tonawanda man has been arrested by narcotics detectives, accused of selling drugs in a a Niagara Falls Boulevard motel room.

Travis Broughton, 36, of Newell Drive, was charged Monday with felony counts of third and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

“He was coming in from his home and then selling drugs from the motel room, rather than selling drugs from his house,” said Narcotics Lt. Theodore Weed. He said detectives had been investigating him for several months and intercepted him when he returned to the motel room in the 6700 block of Niagara Falls Boulevard.

Investigators raided the room with a warrant at about noon Monday and seized a small quantity of crack cocaine and about $2,000, Weed said.
