The Detroit News

Clinton Township — A Roseville city councilman accused of cocaine possession and maintaining a drug house was formally charged with the crime Wednesday.

Charles Frontera, 32, is scheduled to appear Oct. 26 in 41-B District Court in Clinton Township for a probable cause hearing, according to court records.

He has been charged with possessing less than 25 grams of a narcotic/cocaine, a four-year felony, and maintaining a drug house, a two-year misdemeanor.

Michigan State Police officials referred questions to the Macomb County Prosecutor's Office.

The prosecutor's office said Thursday it has no comment on the charges against Frontera.

Frontera's attorney, Vince Manzella, also said Thursday he is not commenting on the case.

Frontera is a small business owner and was re-elected to a second term on Roseville’s City Council last year, the city's web site said.

According to television news reports, the charges stem from a Michigan State Police raid at Frontera's home in February.
