LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man who is awaiting hip surgery, according to his attorney, was placed on five years’ probation Tuesday for selling morphine to a police informant in Niagara Falls last year.

John S. White, 54, of Falls Street, had pleaded guilty before State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. to fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for the Feb. 21, 2012, sale.

In a drug case before Kloch Monday, Terry Cauley Sr., 46, of Peachtree Road, Cheektowaga, admitted to fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and was scheduled for sentencing Feb. 10.

On March 17, Niagara Falls police stopped a car Cauley was driving and found .16 ounces of cocaine. His cousin and passenger, Ian L. Lightfoot, 35, of Niagara Falls, still faces felony drug charges over the incident. Police allegedly found $3,070 in Lightfoot’s pocket, but Cauley admitted ownership of the cocaine, according to police.
