SARANAC LAKE - Village police made another arrest Monday afternoon in connection with a drug roundup two weeks ago, and they say two more arrests are pending.

David A. Corigliano, 24, of North Syracuse, turned himself in to village police. He was arrested at 2:28 p.m. and charged with two counts each of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Police said Corigliano allegedly sold LSD to an undercover informant on two separate occasions. He was arraigned in village court and released.

Eight people were arrested on Sept. 8 after a lengthy drug investigation on a variety of charges, mostly possession and sale of prescription opiates such as oxycodone and hydrocodone. A ninth was arrested last week, and two more arrests are pending, said village police Chief Bruce Nason. One of the people village police are seeking is currently in prison, Nason said, and the other is believed to be in the Potsdam area.

The Franklin County Narcotics/Border Task Force, which includes the Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake and Malone village police forces, the state police, Franklin County District Attorney's Office investigators and the federal Drug Enforcement Agency and Department of Homeland Security, conducted the investigation. Lake Placid police and the St. Lawrence County sheriffs' office also assisted.
