Narcotics detectives crack down on corner of 18th Street and Niagara Avenue

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Bersani finally pulled over a few blocks away, and when he did, detectives saw him passing something to a passenger in the car. When they reached the vehicle, investigators found Mary Nagurney trying to stuff crack cocaine down her pants.

“With Bersani, he’s just gonna keep doing what he’s doing,” LeGault said. “And we’ll just keep arresting him. Hopefully, one of these days, he’ll get some jail time.”

Bersani, 21, 4715 Miller Road, was charged with third- and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and speeding.

Nagurney, 64, 800 Niagara Ave., Apt. PH06, was charged with third- and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

While Bersani was being taken into custody, another team of detectives watched as another car, moving suspiciously through the area, pulled over to the curb and a passenger jumped out. Once again, the investigators observed what appeared to be a hand-to-hand drug sale and they acted.

After stopping Ronnie Dixon Jr., they found him in possession of a quantity of pot. 

Dixon, 35, 18 D Jordan Gardens, was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.

Detectives wrapped up their sweep a short distance from the intersection, in the 1800 block of South Avenue, where they came across a dice game in front of a one-time homicide scene.

“The detectives observed four individuals shooting dice and when they approached them, they saw them dropping (baggies containing) crack and marijuana all around,” LeGault said.

Jaerode Akeem Seright, 18, 1861 Cleveland Ave., Apt. 1 and Kairon Gabby, 18, 1812 Michigan Ave., were each charged with loitering for the purpose of gambling and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Darrell Belton, 16, 1666 South Ave., was charged with third- and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and loitering for the purpose of gambling.

Johnny Hilson, 20, 1814 Willow Ave., was charged with loitering for the purpose of gambling and resisting arrest for fight with detectives as they took him into custody. 

7 Number of arrests made by Falls police during a recent sweep of the 18th Street and Niagara Avenue area.
