A Salamanca, New York, man waived preliminary hearings on charges that he sold fake cocaine.

22-year-old Darrin Whitcomb met undercover state troopers in the Togi’s parking lot in Bradford twice on December 15 to sell what he said was cocaine, according to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office.

The first sale was half an ounce for $650; the second was an ounce for $1,000. Tests at a state police crime lab showed the substance was aspirin, and did not contain cocaine.

Whitcomb is free on bail.
