4 Niagara Falls Gang Members Charged With Narcotics Conspiracy
Four alleged gang members in Niagara Falls have been hit with drug charges. U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced that the four men were charged by criminal complaint with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl.
The four defendants, all from Niagara Falls, are:
• Cameron Lee aka Killer aka Killer Cam, age 28
• Michael Pryor aka Ikey, age 25
• Shawn Pryor aka Ghost, age 31
• Ahmadja Greene, age 28
The men are suspected gang members who have been under investigation by a joint task force made up of the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, Niagara Falls Police Department, and Niagara County Sheriff's Office, since January 2022. Investigators claim the criminal gang has ties to the 'Crips' gang. The gang is suspected of operating in Niagara Falls, NY, and Rochester, NY.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy C. Lynch alleges in the criminal complaint that Lee, Michael Pryor, Shawn Pryor, and Greene are members and associates of the Crips. The four defendants allegedly conspired to sell crack cocaine, fentanyl, and heroin. Investigators made seven controlled drug buys from the men between March and July 2022. In addition to the alleged drug dealing, Michael Pryor and Shawn Pryor are accused of pistol-whipping and beating a person who was also allegedly involved in narcotics trafficking.
Authorities executed a search warrant at Lee's home on Orleans Avenue in Niagara Falls on October 13, 2022. During the search, they seized approximately 59 grams of suspected cocaine and approximately 78 grams of suspected heroin/fentanyl. Police also seized jewelry, three cell phones, and approximately $19,000.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office Western District of New York reminds you,
The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
