Two suspected drug dealers were arrested last week by the Otsego County sheriff’s office.

Claude J. Grant, 27, and Ricky L. Taylor, 35, both of Oneonta, were arrested Friday following a two-week investigation by Oneonta police and the Otsego County sheriff’s office. With the help of a K-9, investigators seized cocaine, marijuana, packaging material, cash and a loaded semi-automatic rifle.

The two were charged with 3rd degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, 4th degree conspiracy, both felonies; 2nd degree criminally using drug paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor; and possession of marijuana, a violation.

Both were taken to the Otsego County jail on $25,000 bail each. If convicted they could spend up to nine years in prison.
