GLOVERSVILLE — A city man has been indicted on half a dozen drug charges by a Fulton County Grand Jury according to District Attorney Chad W. Brown.

In a statement sent Tuesday, Brown said Mazell A. York, 23, of 68 Spring 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 on May 9.

The charges stemmed from an investigation by city police into unlawful sales of cocaine.

According to the indictment, York sold cocaine on at least three occasions in the city. The first occurred on or about Feb. 3 at around 4:14 p.m. where York sold the drug to a confidential informant for $160 in cash.

The indictment states that on Feb. 6, York sold cocaine to an informant for $150 cash and again on Feb. 7, where the drug was sold to the informant for $50.

Following his indictment, York was arraigned in City Court by Judge Louise K. Sira and sent to the Fulton County Jail without bail.
