LOCKPORT – Two Buffalo men appeared Thursday in State Supreme Court to answer drug charges filed after separate arrests last year in North Tonawanda.

Daniel R. Hill, 34, of Texas Avenue, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for having 700 milligrams of cocaine Oct. 21 when police checked on a car in which he was a passenger.

Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. committed to giving Hill a two-year prison term, concurrent with the time he owes as a parole violator. Sentencing was set for April 2.

In the other case, David A. Lee, 23, of Langfield Drive, pleaded not guilty to third-degree sale and possession of a controlled substance. He is accused of making a drug deal with a police informant June 10.
