Police arrested one of three suspects on Tuesday, who was unaccounted for after last week's drug raid. Jose Lozada, 40, of 148 Forbes St., was arrested and charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class B felony.

Detective Lt. Kurt Conroy said Lozada turned himself in Tuesday.

Also arrested as part of the raid were:

* Terrance Cooke, 37, of 267 Division St., charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class B felony, for cocaine sales.

* Joel Torres, 23, of 135 Market St., charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class B felony, for cocaine sales. Police also seized $696 from him.

* Agustin Cepeda, 52, of 321 E. Main St.; Juan Roman, 21, of 9 DeGraff St.; Israel Alicea, 37, of 60 Division St., apartment E-3; and Wilfredo Dearce, 23 of McElwain St., each charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class B felony.

Cepeda was charged in connection with cocaine sales. Roman was charged in connection with cocaine and heroin sales, and Alicea and Dearce were charged in connection with heroin sales.

During the warrant service, police made another arrest after an investigation.

Franklin Ramirez-Vega, 47, who didn't give an address, was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class B felony. Police said he was taken into custody Jan. 9 after he was found to be in possession of 70 individual baggies containing crack cocaine, commonly referred to as "bumpies." He also had an additional quantity of crack cocaine weighing more than 3.5 grams.

All defendants were arraigned in Amsterdam City Court before Judge Howard M. Aison and remanded to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility.
