DUNKIRK –A 30-year-old Buffalo man was arrested in a Dunkirk home Thursday night on court warrants charging him with peddling crack cocaine in the Dunkirk area.

Leon C. Jones, of Hempstead Avenue, Buffalo, was taken into custody in a home on Lakeshore Drive about 7:15 p.m. He charged with criminal possession and sale of a controlled substance, both in the third-degree and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh-degree.

Dunkirk police said additional drug charges may be lodged against him because alleged crack cocaine was found in his clothing when he was being processed at the city jail.

Jones’ arrest is linked to an ongoing investigation by the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force into crack cocaine sales in the Dunkirk area.
