A man and woman are both scheduled to appear in County Court, accused of selling cocaine in Utica over the past several months.

Sheriff’s deputies said warrants were handed down by County Court Judge Michael L. Dwyer for Jacoby Rodgers, 35, and Kadesha Fuentes, 27, both of Utica. Deputies said the pair had been involved in the sale and distribution of cocaine throughout the city over the past several months.

Fuentes was already in county jail on an unrelated charged and Rodgers was picked up in a traffic stop on April 13, authorities said. They are both charged with one count each of third-degree possession and third-degree sale of a controlled substance, both class B felonies, authorities said. They are both scheduled to appear in County Court.
