LOCKPORT – Adaberto Olivieri-Perez, who escaped from a patrol car Jan. 14 after being arrested on a bench warrant, pleaded not guilty Thursday to his second drug-dealing indictment of the month.

State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. added $5,000 to the $25,000 bail he set two weeks ago on Olivieri-Perez, 23, of Willow Avenue, Niagara Falls.

The new indictment includes two counts each of third-degree criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance, stemming from alleged heroin sales to a police informant in the Falls Oct. 21 and 28.

Two weeks ago, when his attorney took him to court two days after his escape, Olivieri-Perez denied a five-count indictment related to heroin, cocaine and marijuana seized by police in a June 19 raid.

Also in Kloch’s court Thursday, Maulana Lucas, 21, of Grand Avenue in the Falls, pleaded not guilty to two counts each of third-degree sale and possession of crack cocaine, Nov. 13 and Dec. 9 in Niagara Falls.
