AG: Amherst Men Sold Coke in State College

Two Buffalo-area men are accused of trafficking $20,000 worth of cocaine near Penn State.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane says 20-year-old Evan Poling and 28-year-old Eduardo “Eddie” Rivera, both of Amherst, New York, were arrested Saturday when they showed up at a predetermined location, where agents seized seven ounces of cocaine with a street value of $20,000. Authorities say the amount of cocaine is significant for State College, where one gram of cocaine typically sells for $100.

Poling and Rivera are in Centre County Jail in lieu of $150,000 cash bail each. The investigation into cocaine distribution in the region is continuing and additional charges are expected.

I should have said, "Yes I do. Stay tuned." It's child predator-related.
