Cocaine, Fentanyl, Cash Seized in Raid at Binghamton Home
Two people face felony drug possession charges after police found cocaine and fentanyl when they searched a residence on Binghamton's East Side.
Authorities say 41-year-old Patrice Tillery of Ely Street and 47-year-old John Wilson of the Bronx were arrested as a result of the raid on Friday.
Police say a warrant was executed at an Ely Street apartment house. About 3.7 ounces of cocaine and 1.2 ounces of fentanyl were confiscated.
About $2,000 in suspected drug sale proceeds and drug packaging materials also were seized.
Both Tillery and Wilson were charged with several counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Wilson also was named in a state parole violation warrant. He was taken to Broome County Jail.
Tillery is to be arraigned at a later date in Binghamton city court.
