A 19-year-old Niagara Falls man and a 20-year-old Buffalo man were arrested late Thursday afternoon for allegedly trespassing at a private residence in the first block of Hill Street.

Darren L. Rice, of Center Avenue, Niagara Falls, and Andre J. Benefield of Fairfield Avenue were both charged with criminal trespass and unlawful possession of marijuana after arresting officers found they had 19 bags of marijuana between them.

Rice was charged with promoting prison contraband when he was found to have another bag of marijuana while the two suspects were being processed at the city lockup.
