A Buffalo man ended up in jail last week for allegedly selling crack cocaine to confidential informants and undercover operatives of the Union County Sheriff’s Office twice in Aug. 2011.
Tyqwan Lamont Robertson, 30, 511 Riley Road, Buffalo, is charged by the sheriff’s office with two counts of distribution of crack cocaine and one count of distribution of crack cocaine within a half-mile of a park.
The report on the first incident states that on Aug. 23, 2011, two sheriff’s deputies met with, searched and then wired two confidential informants with a camera and issued them $20 in recorded funds. The confidential informants then went to South Church Street where they made contact with Robertson. They asked him if he knew where they could purchase a quantity of crack cocaine. The report states that Robertson then took out a white rock-like substance believed to be crack cocaine out of his pocket and sold to the informants in exchange the recorded currency.
After making the purchase, the informants met once again with the deputies and turned over to them the substance they purchased from Robertson along with the camera. The informants were then searched again and the substance they’d purchased sealed in SLED Best Pack to be sent to the agency for analysis. A warrant was then signed on Robertson for distribution of crack cocaine.
The report on the second incident states that on the same day deputies met with and searched two undercover operatives who they wired with audio and video equipment and issued $20 in recorded currency to use to buy a quantity of crack cocaine in the Chambertown area. The operatives then drove to the Chambertown area where they met with Robertson on South Church Street. The report states Robertson got into the operatives’ vehicle and sold them a quantity of crack cocaine in exchange for the recorded currency. It also states that Robertson was smoking a marijuana cigarette while in the vehicle.
The report further states that the transaction took place within a half-mile of the James F. Moore Park on Perrin Avenue.
Once the transaction was complete, Robertson exited the vehicle and the operatives went back to meet with the deputies who’d sent them out. The deputies agains searched the operatives and released them after collecting the evidence and placing it in a Best Pack for analysis by SLED.
Robertson was taken into custody June 26.
