ROCHESTER – A Rochester man was arrested on Wednesday after an investigation into the sale and distribution of heroin, crack cocaine and cocaine from Rochester to Orleans County.

The Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force, the Greater Rochester Narcotics Enforcement Team (G.R.A.N.E.T.), the Rochester Police Department and the Albion Police Department K9 Unit executed a search warrant at 504 Chili Ave., Rochester.

Police seized more than 3 ounces of cocaine, more than an ounce of crack cocaine, five bundles of heroin, a loaded semi-automatic 380 pistol, more than $8,000 in U.S. currency, scales, packaging and other drug paraphernalia.

Trevis D. Baker, 36, of 504 Chili Ave. was arrested on numerous drug charges. Baker is a New York State parolee, the Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force said this afternoon.

Police seized a pistol, drugs and about $8,000 in cash after executing a search warrant at Baker’s residence.

He was arrested on five counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree (Class B felonies). He faces additional drug and weapons charges in Monroe County, as well as possible federal charges, the Task Force said.

Baker was arraigned in Clarendon Town Court by Justice Thomas DiFante, and remanded to Orleans County Jail without bail due to a lengthy criminal history, the Task Force said. Baker is due back in Clarendon Town Court at 11 a.m. on April 5.

The Orleans County Sheriff’s Department also assisted in the investigation.
