Two Buffalo men who police say trafficked hundreds of bags of heroin a week early last year on the lower West Side have pleaded guilty.

Adrian Molina, 23, of Niagara Street, and Frank Ribot, 22, of Northumberland Avenue, pleaded guilty last week to three counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance and three counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

They were arrested March 18, 2012, as the result of a joint investigation by the state police C-Net team and Buffalo Police Narcotics Squad.

Erie County Judge Kenneth F. Case sentenced Molina to two years in prison. He will sentence Ribot on April 16. Ribot faces up to 15 years in prison as a prior felon, according to District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III.
