Buffalo Man Guilty of Drug Charges Involving Housing Projects

Buffalo Man Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges

Involving Perry Housing Projects

U.S. Attorney’s Office August 22, 2014
  • Western District of New York (716) 843-5700

BUFFALO, NY—U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that

Darnell Brown, 30, of Buffalo, N.Y.,

pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 280 grams or more of cocaine base within the Perry Housing Projects before Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny. The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum of life and a $10,000,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy C. Lynch, who is handling the Perry Projects case, stated that the investigation focused on the drug trafficking activities of Tyshawn Bradley, Darnell Brown, Dallas McLamore and their associates.

According to the indictment, Bradley, Brown, McLamore and Eric Ross operated a cocaine base and cocaine distribution organization on a daily basis out of several apartments within the Perry Housing Projects, including apartments within the high-rise towers located at 124 Fulton Street and 305 Perry Street.

Law enforcement utilized court ordered wire interceptions, undercover drug purchases, covert cameras and traditional police investigative techniques to infiltrate and dismantle this organization.

On April 3, 2013, law enforcement officers executed search warrants at 124 Fulton Street and 305 Perry Street during which they recovered over 300 grams of cocaine base and 700 grams of powered cocaine as well as a firearm.

“As we stated before we will not permit anyone to hurt the safety and security of people living in public housing,” said U.S. Attorney Hochul. “Thanks to this prosecution, children are now safe to play both inside and outside the Perry apartments, while residents can live in peace knowing that Darnell Brown, Eric Ross and others who sold drugs in these units have been convicted. We will continue the success of this case by bringing additional cases against remaining City gangs in the near future.

Brown was arrested in April 2013 along with 12 others including Tyshawn Bradley and Nannette Brown both of Cheektowaga, N.Y., Darnell Brown, a/k/a D, 29, Dallas McLamore, a/k/a Ice, a/k/a Dal, Brandon Atkins, a/k/a YB, Tashawn Gay, Melvin Tucker, a/k/a Hoff, David Varner, Latifah Donaldson, a/k/a LaLa, Tara Robinson, a/k/a Coek, and Phayon Redmond, a/k/a Booper, all of Buffalo. Brown is the third defendant to be convicted. The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The plea is the culmination of an investigation on the part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Safe Streets Task Force, the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Matthew Renneman, and the Buffalo Police Department, under the direction of Commissioner Daniel Derenda.

Sentencing is scheduled for January 14, 2015 at 9:00 a.m.

David, just tonight on the news they showed two 20 somethings squatting at a home, trying to get deeds put into their names, amazing!

Sounds like the sovereign citizen tribe at work, Joan.

They're too deluded to recognize the laws that protect our communities. These acts are carried out in desperation to avoid prosecution for income tax evasion and other crimes.

They try to find loopholes in legislation governing adverse possession.

They're extremely dangerous !

David, It saddens me that the drug activity is growing instead of decreasing.
