Blotter: East End Drug Task Force nabs four men

Four men, including Riverhead and Calverton residents, were arrested last week as part of an ongoing East End Drugs Task Force investigation last week, according to police reports.

Alan Minter, 35, of Calverton was arrested last Thursday and charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, Riverhead police said.

Three other men were arrested and charged with second-degree conspiracy that same week. Christopher Magee, 38, of Riverhead was arrested June 20, and both Terrell Bethel, 45, of Mastic Beach and Clinton Holmes, 50, of Bellport were arrested last Friday, officials said.

All four were processed and taken to the Suffolk County Sheriff’s office to be held for arraignment, according to several police reports.

Mr. Magee was arrested in 2008 as part of a prior East End Drug Task Force investigation that busted an alleged cocaine trafficking ring. He was charged with second-degree conspiracy, according to previous reports.

Bob Clifford, a spokesperson with the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office, declined to comment on the arrests, citing an ongoing investigation.
