LAKE GEORGE -- The co-owner of a Lake George restaurant and former college soccer coach was arrested Monday for allegedly selling cocaine on the restaurant property during a police investigation, authorities said.

Charles J. Curto, 55, of Schenectady was charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies, according to the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

His family operates Sicilian Spaghetti House and Pizzeria on Canada Street, and police said the alleged drug sale took place behind the restaurant. Police began investigating Curto’s activities after receiving information in late 2010 that he was involved in drug sales, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Curto is also a former men’s soccer coach at Siena College, officials said.

He is free on his own recognizance pending prosecution in Warren County Court.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Enforcement Unit handled the case.

    As we all know from reality there has been allot going on behind the scenes, and to protect the "tourist business" it has mostly been kept under the rug. Realtors restaraunt/bar owners were busted in "big time sales" years ago. You would have to completyely out of touch if you beleived it all just went away back then. It just changed hands and the cover was/has been kept under wraps more carefully. Now if one gets pinched eventually they reveal others for a plea deal, thats what they call a "police informant" a guy who squeals on his cohorts...what goes around comes around. I'm sure after keeping this one quiet for so long they now have finished investigation on the "others" who will soon be in the same boat.
