A Buffalo man is under arrest after Sheriff's Deputies say he tried to smuggle a crack pipe into the Rath Building in Buffalo.

Investigators say 31-year-old Vincent Sorrentino tried to conceal the pipe before passing through security last Friday.  When deputies asked Sorrentino to remove his footwear, they say a pipe and white residue fell out of his shoe. 

When taken into custody, investigators say they found a quantity of crack in one of his shoes.

Sorrentino, who has outstanding warrants in both Orchard Park and the Village of Hamburg is being held at the Erie County Holding Center on $2,500 bail.
