Two arrests; one at-large in Dunkirk drug raid
A drug raid in Dunkirk has led to two arrests but one suspect is still at large and wanted by police for felony drug charges.
The city of Dunkirk Police, in conjunction with the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force (STRDTF), concluded a six-month long investigation into the sale of crack cocaine in the 400 block of Deer Street.
A search warrant was issued and a raid conducted at 425 Deer St. Friday evening. Two men, Stephen Easley, 25, of Lincoln Avenue, Dunkirk, and Mykal Andino, 20, of Rochester, were in the residence at the time of the raid. Detectives allege each were in possession of crack cocaine packaged for street-level sale. Each was charged with two felony counts, third- and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Both were locked up in Dunkirk City Jail pending arraignment in Dunkirk City Court.
A third suspect, Brenda Carter-Doucette, 50, who lives at the residence where the raid was conducted, was not at the residence at the time of the raid. She is wanted on the same two charges.
The charges result from undercover purchases of crack cocaine by STRDTF agents over the last several months. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Carter-Doucette are encouraged to contact the Dunkirk Police Depart-ment.
All information will be kept strictly confidential.
