Seneca County Sheriff Tim Luce reports the arrest of a 43-year-old Waterloo man on multiple felony counts following an investigation into the sale of controlled substances.

On Monday around 6:15 pm members of the Narcotics Unit arrested Jason V. Minguez, 43, of Waterloo after allegedly selling powdered cocaine and crack cocaine within the Village of Waterloo and Town of Fayette.

He was charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance – all felonies – and two counts of criminal use of drug paraphernalia, which are misdemeanors.
