It didn’t take long for a jury to convict a New York man on drug charges. He was in possession of 613 grams of pot when police arrested him last summer.

Randy Duane Lovelace Jr., 30, of Port Jervis, N.Y., was convicted of possession with intent to deliver after a jury deliberated for about 30 minutes Thursday.

The jury found Lovelace not guilty of two other misdemeanor charges. 

Police arrested Lovelace at a Lehigh Twp. residence where he was in possession of the 613 grams of marijuana.

In a separate case, a Damascus man was arrested for selling cocaine to a confidential police informant.

Sixty-three year old James Warren was convicted Monday by jury of one felony count of delivery of cocaine.

Warren delivered cocaine to a confidential informant in June 2009.

A jury deliberated for two-and-a-half hours before reaching their verdict, which included a not guilty verdict on two counts of delivery of cocaine which were alleged to have occurred in Warren’s home with a confidential informant.

Both cases were prosecuted by Asst. District Attorney Patrick Robinson. President Judge Raymond Hamill presided over both cases.

“Wayne County law enforcement stands committed to pursuing people who sell drugs in this county and doing our best to ensure that they end up behind bars,” D.A. Michael Lehutsky stated.
