ALBION – Two teen-agers who were arrested at a motel in early October after being found with cocaine were arraigned in Orleans County Court on Monday.

Andrew L. Coley, 19, of Albion and a 17-year-old girl from Webster were arraigned on two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, two counts of CPCS in the fifth degree, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful possession of marijuana.

The Albion Police Department and Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force executed a search warrant on Oct. 6 at a motel in Albion.

After entry was made into the room, police discovered a runaway juvenile inside the room from Parsons Children and Family Center in Albany. Coley and the girl also were allegedly in the room.

Police also found drugs packaged for sale, including crack cocaine, heroin, prescription pills, marijuana, cash and other drug paraphernalia, the Task Force said in a news release announcing the arrests.

County Court Judge James Punch set bail at Coley for $5,000 and $1,000 for the girl, who may be given youthful offender status. (If given youthful offender, her name shouldn’t be published.)

In other arraignments on Monday:

• Edgar L. Rosario, 30, of Medina was arraigned on charges of felony driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

He was arrested on Sept. 25 after he was allegedly driving drunk with a BAC of 0.18 percent and struck a house on Eagle Harbor Road. District Attorney Joe Cardone said Rosario has two prior convictions for driving while impaired/intoxicated. Judge Punch set bail at $5,000.

• A Hilton woman was arraigned on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth and seventh degrees.

Sara Harris, 35, allegedly was found with heroin and pills in her vehicle when she was stopped in Murray on Oct. 26 by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office.

Harris allegedly had two amphetamine pills and 18 small, plastic bags which field tested positive for heroin.

Judge Punch set bail at $10,000 for Harris.
