LOCKPORT – Two Niagara Falls men were arraigned in Niagara County Court Monday on nearly identical six-count indictments that accused them of making three crack cocaine sales to undercover police officers in late 2012.

Antonio D. Porter Jr. and William T. Lewis pleaded not guilty to three counts each of third-degree criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance. Both have prior felony drug convictions, Porter from 2007 and Lewis from 2004.

Porter, 27, of Greenview Terrace, allegedly sold crack Nov. 29 and Dec. 11 and 19. Lewis, 30, of Falls Street, allegedly did the same on Nov. 20, 27 and 28.

County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III set bail at $500 for Porter and $1,000 for Lewis.
