Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports a 2-month long Narcotics Unit investigation culminated in the arrest of a Village of Alden resident.

During the raid, Narcotics Unit members recovered approximately four pounds of marijuana and $3,800.00 in U.S. currency. Jurek is charged with a felony count of criminal possession of marijuana and is held at the Erie County Holding Center pending his arraignment in Village of Alden Court.
