Rochester Man Arrested For His Role In Buffalo To Rochester Cocaine Trafficking Ring

Buffalo, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Seymour Miles, 24, of Rochester, NY, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with possession with the intent to distribute, and distribution of, cocaine, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

The charges carry a mandatory minimum penalty of five years in prison, a maximum of 20 years, and a $1,000,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Patricia Astorga, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, in April 2018, the DEA began an investigation into a cocaine distribution organization operating in Rochester and Buffalo, NY. During the course of the investigation, the defendant was identified as a member of this organization, which was responsible for the distribution of cocaine and crack cocaine to a network of customers. Between September 24, 2018, and October 18, 2018, the DEA conducted three controlled purchases of cocaine from Miles.

A search warrant was subsequently executed at the defendant’s Paige Street residence during which officers recovered a loaded 9mm handgun and .22 caliber rifle, narcotic packaging materials, scales, crack cocaine packaged for distribution, and packaging materials containing suspected heroin residue.
