Buffalo Marijuana Grow Operation Shut Down.

Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit, along with Buffalo Police Department’s narcotics unit, raided a residence at 15 Olga Place in Buffalo on November 7 and arrested one individual.



The team executed a search warrant Wednesday evening signed by Buffalo City Court Judge Amy Martoche.  Inside the dwelling, Detectives, Deputies, and Officers located a marijuana growing operation, thirty marijuana plants, loose marijuana, and a rifle loaded with thirty rounds of ammunition.


36-year-old Angel Montes was arrested and charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a weapon – ammunition feeding device, criminal possession of marijuana – more than 16-ounces, and criminal possession of a firearm.  Montes is also charged with a misdemeanor count of unlawfully growing cannabis.


The narcotics unit initiated the month-long investigation after a Sheriff’s Office intelligence unit gathered information about the illegal growing operation.

The previously convicted felon is held at the Erie County Holding Center without bail pending future court appearances.
