Two people from Auburn are facing multiple criminal charges in a multi-year case from the Finger Lakes Drug Task Force, according to the Auburn Police Department.

Auburn Deputy Police Chief Anthony said Kenneth C. Shelton, 63, and Amy L. Kocur, 47, both of 15 Madison Ave., allegedly sold cocaine to undercover task force agents and also possessed the substances. The duo turned themselves in at the Auburn police station Tuesday on warrants issued by the Cayuga County District Attorney's Office, Anthony said.

Shelton sold cocaine to undercover agents four times between late 2017 and January 2019, Anthony said, adding that Kocur also sold cocaine to an agent in late 2017.

Task force members executed search warrants for the pair's residence and a car used by them Jan. 24 and found less than half an ounce of cocaine in multiple individual packages, weighing scales, a cutting agent and packaging materials, Anthony said. They were in the car at the time when the warrant was executed.

Anthony said the evidence was seized and the task force compiled that information and the information related to the sales into a case for the district attorney's office.

Shelton turned himself in Tuesday and was charged with third-degree possession of a controlled substance, fourth-degree possession of marijuana, two counts of second-degree use of drug paraphernalia and six counts of third-degree sale of a controlled substance. He was also picked up on an unrelated bench warrant. Kocur turned herself in for third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, third-degree sale of a controlled substance and two counts of second-degree use of drug paraphernalia.
