Meth charges for city man
A Lockport man was arrested on drug charges Saturday morning, nearly two months after his home was raided by several area police agencies.
Vincent E. McCabe, 34, 55 Elmira St., was charged with third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine and seventh-degree possession of a controlled substance.
McCabe’s home was raided on Jan. 14 by the Niagara County Drug Task Force, with assistance from New York State and Lockport police. Neighbors had complained about an alleged methamphetamine operation at the address, Undersheriff Michael Filicetti said at the time.
In the raid, police confiscated two containers with a white powder substance and “numerous” items used in the making of methamphetamine. The material was sent to the Sheriff’s Office Forensic Laboratory, where the results came back positive this week. McCabe was located at the home and taken into custody without incident, police said.
McCabe was held for Monday arraignment in city court.

Noworyta, 25, 1075 100th St., was charged with DWI, failure to use a designated lane and refusal to take a breath test about 2 a.m. Saturday, according to Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies. Police were directed to Sawyer Drive after receiving a report of a reckless driver on Niagara Falls Boulevard. When deputies spotted the truck, being driven by Noworyta, it swerved out of its lane and almost drove into a snowbank. Once stopped, Noworyta appeared intoxicated and he failed field sobriety tests. He refused to submit to a chemical test after being charged.
