LOCKPORT

Man to be extradited to Puerto Rico

A traffic stop on Tonawanda Creek Road led to the arrest of a Lockport man wanted in Puerto Rico for allegedly selling heroin.

Juan D. Montanez-Melendez, 24, of 6495 Dysinger Road, was arrested at 8:25 p.m. Sunday after he was pulled over for speeding.

When a Niagara County Sheriff's deputy ran a background check on Montanez-Melendez's driver’s license, the check revealed he had an outstanding warrant in Puerto Rico.

Montanez-Melendez denied having any warrants or ever being arrested, but dispatchers were able to confirm all of the reported information.

Puerto Rico officials said they will extradite.
