SARATOGA COUNTY — Two Stillwater men face felonies and four others face misdemeanors after a lengthy investigation into drug trafficking in Saratoga County, sheriff’s officials said Tuesday.

Donald J. Woodruff, 57, and Asante U. Robinson, 28, both of Stillwater, each face one count of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, along with a misdemeanor drug count. Robinson also faces one count of tampering with physical evidence, officials said.

Investigators arrested Woodruff and Robinson, along with the four others, Friday.

Woodruff and Robinson are accused of distributing crack cocaine throughout the county, officials said. Investigators executed a search warrant at their Route 9P residence and seized quantities of crack cocaine, packaging materials and scales, officials said.

Woodruff and Robinson were arraigned and released to pre-trial services. 

Those arrested as part of the investigation on one misdemeanor count each of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance were identified as Mikaela DeMarco, 25, of Saratoga Springs; Alena DeMarco, 21, of Saratoga Springs; Nicholas Haigler, 23, of Corinth; and Xavier Jackson, 28, of the Bronx. They were released to appear in court later.
