City of Dunkirk Police made another arrest Friday in connection with last week's raid at 425 Deer St.
Willard Lee Wright III, 25, was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, both class B felonies, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
At 3:30 p.m. Friday Dunkirk Police officers and agents from the Chautauqua County Office of Probation returned to the residence after detectives developed information that Wright, who was wanted on a felony warrant issued by Dunkirk City Court Judge Walter Drag, had returned to, and was staying at that address.

Wright was arrested at the home without incident. Police also allegedly seized a quantity of marijuana and a significant amount of U.S. currency. During the initial investigation by Dunkirk Police detectives and the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force, Wright allegedly sold quantities of crack cocaine to undercover police agents.
He is currently being held without bail in the Dunkirk City Jail pending his arraignment in Dunkirk City Court.
Dunkirk Police executed a previous search warrant at 425 Deer St. on Oct. 19 which resulted in the arrest of a Dunkirk man and a female from Rochester being arrested on drug trafficking charges.
