MEDINA – Three people who were arrested July 6 after an investigation into the sale and distribution of crack cocaine in Medina all appeared in Orleans County Court on Monday.

The following were arraigned for third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance: Erika H. Poole, 36, of Salt Works Road in Medina; Calvin S. Carver, 27, of Salt Works Road in Medina; and Harold D. Hill Jr., 38, of Pine Street in Lockport.

Poole faces the additional charge of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
The three are currently inmates in the Orleans County Jail on $50,000 bail. Carver will be fully arraigned after completing paperwork to see if he qualifies for the public defender’s office and assigned counsel.

Law enforcement, as part of the investigation, seized more than 20 grams of crack cocaine, cash, two shotguns and other drug paraphernalia.

The Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office, the Medina Police Department, and the New York State Division of Parole worked together in the investigation.

Poole and Carver are also being held on parole warrants issued by the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.
