Ogdensburg crack suspects’ cases go to grand jury


The cases of two men arrested last week in Ogdensburg for crack cocaine possession will be heard by a St. Lawrence County grand jury.

At a preliminary hearing Monday in Ogdensburg City Court, Reginald A. Barnes, 26, aka “Day Day,”of Buffalo, and Triston L. Glenn, 31, aka “T,” and “Fresh Money,”of Cambria Heights, each appeared to answer a charge of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, crack cocaine; and also for an unlawful possession of marijuana charge against Mr. Glenn.

Mr. Barnes, represented by St. Lawrence County Conflict Defender Amy L. Dona, waived his right to the preliminary hearing.

Mr. Glenn, represented by St. Lawrence County Public Defender Alison B. Appleby, was unsuccessful in getting the criminal possession against him dropped.

Both men were arrested Oct. 15 at 157 Belmont Courts. Officers from the city police department’s narcotics enforcement unit and uniformed patrolmen with members of the St. Lawrence County Drug Task Force and the Gouverneur Police Department executed a search warrant and found in the apartment a total of fifty, prepackaged baggies of crack cocaine with a street value of $5,000.

Also found were cash, a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Ogdensburg Police Detective Sgt. Robert H. Wescott testified at the preliminary hearing that two officers discovered a baggie of crack in Mr. Glenn’s possession.

Ms. Appleby was unsuccessful in getting the criminal possession dropped because the testimony was “hearsay” and failed to establish “the element of possession.”

Judge William R. Small continued bail for both men at $10,000 cash bail/$20,000 bond in St. Lawrence County jail, Canton.

A third defendant in the Oct. 15 arrests, Kaquane B. Bovain, 30, aka “KO,” and “Sleezie,”of Jamaica, Queens, pleaded guilty Friday in Ogdensburg City Court to a charge of unlawful possession of marijuana.

Judge A. Michael Gebo fined Mr. Bovain $100 and ordered him to pay $120 in surcharges.
