Two more arrested in drug case
11/4/01


Two more arrests have been made in the case of a drug deal gone bad, Erie County sheriff's deputies reported Friday night.

Eugene A. Todie, 20, of Kenmore, and Levi G. Phillips, 17, of Grand Island, each were charged with felony counts of robbery and assault, and a misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a weapon.

Deputies said the arrests completed an investigation of an Oct. 25 robbery of Grand Island resident Stephen Spath, which occurred in a car driven by Timothy J. Higgins, 19, who was arrested that night. Spath allegedly solicited Phillips because he wanted to buy some marijuana; once the car reached Spath's home, he was accosted by Higgins and robbed of about $50, authorities said.

Todie, a passenger, is accused of wrapping a cord around Spath's neck and choking him. Spath then was pushed from the car.

The arrests were made Wednesday by Detective Kenneth Stevens and Deputy Kevin Stephens. Following arraignment, Todie was sent to the county holding center in lieu of $5,000 bail and Phillips was released to his parents' custody.
