CANTON— Two Potsdam residents accused of selling drugs in the village in 2011 were indicted Wednesday by a St. Lawrence County grand jury.

Michael J. Fruce, 21, of 15 Bay St., was indicted for three counts of felony third-degree criminal sale of marijuana and one count of felony fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Mr. Fruce is accused of selling 29 grams of marijuana in the village of Potsdam on both Oct. 15 and Oct. 29, 2011, and again on Nov. 29, 2011.

He allegedly sold an amphetamine on Oct. 29, 2011, also in the village.

Mr. Fruce, who is represented by attorney Brian P. Barrett, Lake Placid, will appear in St. Lawrence County Court for arraignment today.

Andrew P. Miller, 21, of 301 Wilson House, Clarkson University, faces two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Mr. Miller allegedly sold cocaine in the village on Nov. 12 and Nov. 13, 2011.

Judge Richards unsealed the indictments Wednesday morning.
