A 26-year-old suspected Niagara Falls drug dealer was arrested on felony drug charges as Niagara Falls police narcotics detectives and the department’s Emergency Response Team broke into his apartment at 4600 Hyde Park Avenue about 6:15 a.m. Thursday.

Jermaine G. Ellison was taken into custody and about a half-dozen different prescription drugs he was allegedly selling were confiscated, along with digital scales and drug packaging materials, according to Capt. David LeGault, chief of the narcotics bureau. Police also found $16,814 in cash, which LeGault said is believed to be “the proceeds of his illegal drug sales.”
