ALBION – Two Rochester men face numerous drug charges after they were arrested on Friday in the village of Albion during a vehicle stop at 167 South Main St.

The charges followed a month-long investigation into the sale and distribution of heroin and crack cocaine in the village of Albion, during which police seized 40 bags of heroin. They also confiscated more than a quarter ounce of crack cocaine, with a street value of over $1,000, the Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force reported this morning.

Terry L. Holmes, 31 of 380 Calm Lake Circle in Rochester was charged with two counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree, two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree, and one count of aggravated unlicensed operation in the first degree.

Holmes is currently under parole supervision with the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

He was arraigned by Albion Town Justice Kevin Howard and committed to county jail on no bail, due to Holmes’s previous criminal history, according to the Task Force.

Burroughs

Law enforcement also arrested Kamerin D. Burroughs, 23, of 126 Normandy Ave. in Rochester. He was charged with two counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree, two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, and one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree.

Burroughs was arraigned by Justice Howard and committed to the county jail on $25,000 bail. Both Holmes and Burroughs are to return to town court at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.

The Major Felony Crime Task Force teamed with the Albion Police Department and the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department to conduct the vehicle stop on Friday. The investigation is ongoing and further charges and arrests are pending, the Task Force said.
