FORT PLAIN - Village police said 10 arrests, all of them drug related, were made Monday in a raid conducted across the village as part of a six-month investigation.

Village police said officers worked with the Drug Enforcement Agency, Montgomery County Sheriff's Department, New York State Tax and Finance and other agencies, to build a case against those arrested on drug charges.

The arrests were based on a more than six-month investigation into drug sales in the village, police said. Drugs bought by undercover officers netted heroin, suboxene, hydrocodone, hydromorphone and marijuana, police said.

Police said Ronald Hogan, 24, Beth Warner, 35, and Douglas Ostrander, 28, all of 88 Main St., were charged with two counts each of third-degree criminal sale and two counts each of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Warner and Ostrander also were charged with criminal nuisance.

Timothy Hart, of 29 Reid St., was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and two counts of third-degree criminal possession of controlled substance.

Joshua Tomlinson, 21, of 8 Railroad St., Nelliston, Raymond Mojica, 30, of 158 Mill St., Canajoharie, and Deedo Cook, 56, of 18 Cross St., were charged with one count each of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and one count each of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Ginger Horning, 41, of 25 LaFayette St., was charged with three counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and three counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Nicholas Yager, 25, of 6 Willet St., was charged with one count of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and with violating his probation.

Third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance are both felonies.

Another arrest made was of Kelly Kennedy, 42, of 9 York St., Fultonville. Kennedy was charged with second-degree criminal sale of marijuana, a felony.

Those arrested were arraigned in Minden Town Court. Several were sent to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility.
