An Attica woman was arrested Sept. 7 following a five-month investigation into alleged drug sales in the Village of Attica.
Members of the Wyoming County Drug Task Force, Village of Attica Police, Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office, and a New York State Police K-9 unit converged on Kara Baker’s Lincoln Avenue home around 6:30 p.m. Sept. 7. During the search, officer’s say they found a large quantity of suspected cocaine, controlled substances and drug paraphernalia.
Additionally, a child younger than 16 years old was in the home during the search, prompting an endangerment charge.
