Morgan J. Frazier, 51, of Ticonderoga, was sentenced to 7 years for his guilty pleas to felony counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance. Frazier will spend 4 years on parole after he is released from prison.

Claudia L. Pina, 21, of Fall River, Massachusetts, was sentenced to 6 years in state prison, to be followed by 2 years on parole for her convictions Oct. 27 on two felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance for a March 18 seizure of 140 bags of crack cocaine on Lord Howe Street in Ticonderoga.

The two were among nine people arrested on a variety of drug-related charges following an investigation by State Police, Ticonderoga Police Department and Essex County Sheriff’s Office.
