LOCKPORT – Antoine R. Bones, whom Niagara Falls police called a cocaine dealer when they arrested him May 3, accepted a plea offer Tuesday that included a five-year state prison sentence.

Bones, 28, of South Avenue in the Falls, admitted to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and will remain free on bail pending sentencing April 22 by Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III. But the sentence was agreed upon Tuesday.

Bones agreed to forfeit $2,100 police seized when they stopped Bones’ car on Highland Avenue, after failing to find him in a raid on his then-home on Centre Avenue. They seized about 11 ounces of cocaine from that house.
