The Journal-Register —

Seven individuals were arrested in Medina on Jan. 10 after a six-month investigation into the sale and distribution of prescription narcotics and marijuana.

The Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force, along with the Medina Police Department and the Orleans County Sheriff's Department, executed search warrants at 124 Erin Road and 135 State St. in the village. As a result, seven people were charged.

The individuals charged were Matthew J. Albone, 32, 124 Erin Road; Stacy D. Bryan, 23, 525 West Ave., Apt. 3; Kimberly C. Dillon, 57, 135 State St.; Serina Winters, 37, 909 Church St., Apt. 1; Lori S. Martinez, 47, 325 Park Ave., Apt. 1; Kayla Rowling, 22, 803 South Main St.; and Bradley W. Albone, 63, 124 Erin Road.

Matthew Albone was charged with two counts of fourth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and two counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Bryan and Dillon both were charged with three counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, three counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and one count of third-degree welfare fraud.

Winters 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 third-degree welfare fraud.

Martinez was charged with one count each of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and third-degree welfare fraud.

Rowling was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sale of marijuana, and Bradley Albone was charged with one count of unlawful possession of marijuana.

Rowling received a ticket to appear in Shelby Justice Court on March 6, while Bradley Albone received a ticket to appear in Ridgeway Justice Court on Feb. 10.

The other five defendants — Bryan, Matthew Albone, Dillon, Martinez and Winters — were arraigned by Ridgeway Justice Lawrence H. Sanderson, who ordered them held on $10,000 bail each pending scheduled return court appearances Wednesday.

The welfare fraud charges stem from the individuals receiving public assistance and obtaining prescription drugs through Medicaid, according to the sheriff's office.
