Bob Joseph/ WNBF News

The Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force says four men are being charged following a search of a home on Howard Avenue in the City of Binghamton February 13.

The SIU Task Force, U.S. Marshal’s Service, New York State Division of Parole, New York State Police Violent Felony Warrant Squad, the Binghamton Police and Broome County Sheriff’s officials worked together on the narcotics investigation. 

36 year old Terrance Brown, who lives at the Howard Avenue address, was wanted on a parole violation and police say they found he had seven grams of heroin, packaged for sale, in his possession.

Authorities say 33 year old James Thomas of St. Albans, New York was also found to have about 7 grams of sale-ready heroin in his possession.

Police say the pair barricaded an inside door and tried to get rid of the drugs when officers arrived.

Officials say they also found 33 year old Jose Torres of Johnson City in possession of 17 grams of crack cocaine packaged for sale. 

All three are charged with drug possession while Thomas and Brown are charged with evidence tampering and obstructing governmental administration.

The men were sent to the Broome County Jail without bail
