City man facing drug charges

Thursday, September 04, 2014 - Updated: 10:14 AM

An Amsterdam man accused of selling crack and cocaine was arrested by city police on warrants early this morning after leaving the Impala Club on East Main Street.

Amsterdam Police Detective Lt. Kurt Conroy said Gabriel Gonzalez, 28, of 22 Bunn St., Apt. 1, was charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class B felony, for prior drug sales that allegedly spanned a five-month period.

Gonzalez was also charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class B felony, for the three-quarters of an ounce of cocaine and crack found on him during his arrest. Conroy said the drugs had a street value of approximately $1,500.

After obtaining an arrest warrant signed by city court Judge Lisa Lorman, detectives and patrol officers conducted surveillance of the Impala Club, as detectives received information Gonzalez was frequenting the club. They saw Gonzalez leave, and picked him up a short time later, according to the report.

Additionally, Gonzalez was wanted on a parole warrant issued in Brooklyn for an undisclosed post-release supervision violation.

It was expected Gonzalez would be arraigned in Amsterdam City Court before Judge Howard Aison this morning. New York State parole filed its warrant with Amsterdam Police early today. It was to be forwarded to the local criminal court upon his arraignment.
