BUFFALO – U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. has reported that Emmanuel Humphrey, 33, of Atlanta – formerly of Buffalo – has pleaded guilty to conspiring to possess with the intent to distribute and distribute crack cocaine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua A. Violanti, who is handling the case, said that between July and December 2018, the accused conspired with co-accused Erin Cameron to sell crack cocaine. On December 30, 2018, Humphrey, Cameron and another individual drove from Buffalo to Salamanca in the accused’s vehicle so that Cameron could sell drugs in and around the Salamanca area.

Violanti said that, in the trunk, Cameron carried a pistol with six rounds of ammunition. On March 6, 2019, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Drug Enforcement Administration executed a federal search warrant on Humphrey’s vehicle and a quantity of crack was recovered in a rear compartment in the trunk of the vehicle.

Cameron has already been convicted and is awaiting conviction.

The advocacy is the result of an investigation by the Office of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Services; the Southern Level Regional Drugs Working Group; the Drug Enforcement Administration; and the Salamanca Police Department.

Sentencing is scheduled for September 7, 2021, before US District Judge John L. Sinatra Jr. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of $ 1 million.
