Task Force 'cracks' case

Medina Journal-Register — Two Rochester men were charged Friday with drug related offenses after a month-long investigation into the sale and distribution of heroin and crack cocaine in the Village of Albion.

The Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force, along with the Albion Police Department and the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department, stopped a vehicle in the village and both men in it were charged. Law enforcement officials seized 40 bags of heroin and more than a quarter ounce of crack cocaine, with a street value of over $1,000.

The suspects charged were Terry L. Holmes and Kamerin D. Burroughs.

Holmes, 31, 380 Calm Lake Circle, Rochester, was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and one count of first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Holmes also is currently under parole supervision with the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

Burroughs, 23, 126 Normandy Ave., Rochester, was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Both suspects were arraigned in Town of Albion Justice Court. Holmes was committed to the Orleans County Jail on no bail due to his previous criminal history. Burroughs was committed to the Orleans County Jail on $25,000 cash or bond. Both were to return to Town of Albion Justice Court Nov. 26.

The investigation is still ongoing and further charges and arrests are pending.
